Boomkat Product Review:
Victor Herrero may already be familiar to some of you thanks to his electrified contributions to Josephine Foster's This Coming Gladness album, but this album showcases his stunning talents on the nylon-strung acoustic guitar - the album's subtitle plainly reads '10 Songs For Spanish Guitar', which hardly conveys a sense of Herrero's technical virtuosity and finely worked instrumental song craft. Mixing folk music, flamenco and classical styles Herrero represents an inspired new voice on the solo acoustic guitar scene, and it's fitting that Bo Weavil - a label that's no stranger to the movement - should be behind the release. Due to the particular techniques of Herrero's Andalusian playing style and the hybridity/multiplicity of his musical direction, Anacoretta sounds like very little else out there, revealing a compelling modern European alternative to the more Americanised guitar sounds you might tend to hear on Tompkins Square.
