Boomkat Product Review:
Thomas Morr saw off allcomers in competition for this ace material, a gorgeously sundrenched foray into layered guitar music and dense pop! Anyone who's ever nursed a battered heart, early nineties, with a copy of My Bloody Valentine's "Loveless", will understand the primal, pure pop surges at work here. Just check "Melt" for an example of just how visceral and glittering this album often seems to be. In its past it's been very, very rare that an unsollicited demo has sneaked in without any previous contact into the world of Morr. When Guitar's "sunkissed" finally found its way from the bottom of Thomas's pile the man could hardly suppress an angelic grin and immediately set off to try and contact the artist in question. This proved rather more difficult than the boss had anticipated, no names or contacts provided, just the music. This much is known : the artist behind Guitar isa culture junky recently relocated to the green void of the german sauerland, a man who requires neither introduction nor statement and uses this moniker with a healthy distance and dose of irony for this, his third musical project, to exhaustively experiment with guitar sounds. Guitar have effortlessly allowed two years of music making to boil down and evaporate, to reduce and grow again...finally garnished with a generous portion of pop and lightened by the heavenly sighs of Regina (of Donna Regina) and Ayako from Tokyo, 'sunkissed' translates and transports its references into a euphoric presence, symphonic guitar noise and sirens with a relaxed Ulysses on a sunkissed boat deck full of time. Gorgeous.
