Boomkat Product Review:
The divine 'Nihil Obstat' finds baroque lute revivalist Jozef Van Wissem playing solo after a succession of collaborations with filmmaker and guitarist Jim Jarmusch. While still operating on the periphery of most known musics, Jozef's sound is a revelation waiting to happen for anyone who's not encountered him before, and this is as good a place as any to make yourself acquainted. His six pieces here express sensations you simply won't feel from any other instrument than a 14 course ebonized baroque lute. It's such an strange and gorgeous sound. You can easily imagine the power the instrument must have had over slightly less enlightened (read: less cynical) folk than ourselves hundreds of years ago, but it's also testament to Van Wissem's sensitive skill and approach that it doesn't come off as stuffy or overly mannered like some posh recital. Truly transcendent music. Warmest recommendation.
