Available! Lo Fi Cassette Edition of Unblinking Sun by Steve Palmer
Good news for cassette tape lovers. Steve Palmer's album "Unblinking Sun" is now available as C40 LoFi Cassette.
…Unblinking Sun may bounce around stylistically over the course of the album’s 40+ minutes, but the overall vibe is cohesive and engaging, drifting from dreamy, feedback-layered drones of ” Banjo Burner” to the noisy rattle of “Plastic Mouth.” As a new addition to the ever-expanding realm of recent guitar anti-heroes, Palmer is one to watch.

The cassette is available over bandcamp and comes with an immediate download (incl. a bonus track that didn't fit on the tape)

Steve Palmer is from Minneapolis, MN and plays psychedelic folk that bears heavy influence from both krautrock and the American Primitive of John Fahey. Unblinking Sun is a hard-to-predict album because eccentric influences, and that unpredictably is truly an asset. Parts of it are undoubtedly pulled straight from the guitar picking tradition that Fahey inspired, of which I can never get my fill, and like Fahey himself Palmer wasn’t afraid to get experimental with it. It has the trappings sound collage with touch ambient noises and spoken word that provide the far out psychedelic folk with a theatricality. Nonetheless, it really is Palmer’s amazing skill with the guitar the makes this album anything at all, and boy howdy can he play.
Other than that...
