Gareth Davis and Steven R. Smith

Westering and The Line Across are two albums of scorched explorations for guitar and clarinet, courtesy of Gareth Davis and Steven R. Smith and released only in limited edition vinyl form. Davis's clarinet is a mournful, dissonant force, while Smith's guitar shifts from smokey Americana to sweeping harmonic drone and back again. With their deep, evocative, and gorgeously textured soundscapes, these albums would make the perfect score to some desolate surrealist Western.
