Boomkat Product Review:
This album combines with its vinyl companion piece Shots At Infinity 2 to present another side of Tom Carter's work, away from the folk-influenced acoustics and fingerpicking you might often associate with his work and into the realms of Loren Connors-style electric blues, effects-enhanced sustain and the sort of heavy tremolo drone you'd hear from a Growing record. These three extended recordings were laid down in "various basements in the northeastern USA from late 2007" and consequently have a very raw, off-the-cuff feel to them, which fits Carter's style of playing down to the ground. When he plugs in there's a wild, exploratory feel to his music that's as crammed with as many explosive melodic gestures as it is chaotic avant-garde developments. Ace.
