Boomkat Product Review:
Iowa City guitarist Evan Miller first released this album as a handmade tour edition, but now Preservation give it the airing it deserves, complete with a new Pete Swanson mastering job. There's a genuine embrace of the spirit of blues guitar on tracks like 'I Will Turn Your Money Green', which owes a debt to a variety of sources, from the Furry Lewis original to contemporary triumphs like Jim O'Rourke's Bad Timing, Six Organs Of Admittance or even Voice Of The Seven Woods (who springs to mind during the electrified wah-wah passages towards the end). Further to that, as Takoma-styled rags go, 'Deep In The Comb' and 'The Twigs' are superior efforts, really getting into the spirit of early John Fahey recordings. Miler's creativity goes beyond a mere tribute however, and you can hear a more pared down, even ambient approach to acoustic guitar composition on 'Honey Loop' and 'The Ascent', teetering towards a kind of close-up experimental minimalism. He sounds like an entirely different player again on the tension-building 'View Atop The Pillar', eschewing whatever Robbie Basho-isms you may have expected for a kind of brooding, freetime minor-key excursion full of florid high-end licks.
