Boomkat Product Review:
Timely reissue of this 2002 masterpiece by the shadowy man of Americana's avant-garde. 'The Departing Of A Dream' is one of those records that practically anyone with a fancy for desolate electric guitar music should own. In effect a collaboration with his amp and the space around him, it yields a captivating chiaroscuro light show of Connors' signature ghost melodies embedded within richest, overgrowing fuzz hues and decay, the sort of spindly motifs that trace the ear with cold, skeletal touch, and shimmering harmonics that beg you to bathe naked in their cloudy moonlight. Genuinely breathtaking music, highly recommended.
