Boomkat product review for:

jesse sparhawk & eric carbonara - Sixty Strings

Sixty strings might sound like quite a lot for one record, but surprisingly they’re spread between only two musicians, namely Jesse Sparhawk (who plays a 38-string lever harp) and Eric Carbonara (on 22-string upright Chaturangui guitar). Both experienced musicians with exemplary training, they combine their love of classical minimalism and the weird-world spiritualism of later Popol Vuh expertly. ‘Sixty Strings’ is not simply an exercise in musical tourism by any stretch, this music is assured and expertly performed, and while the duo wear their influences on their sleeve, the record sounds like something new entirely. This is a peaceful album that doesn’t outstay its welcome or drag in the slightest over its running time, rather it engrosses and enthralls, and had me hanging from every nimble pick.
