Boomkat Product Review:
"This album of guitar compositions is meant to accompany you on an imaginary walk on Mars. With it you may experience landscapes both strange and familiar, in vivid colours and dull..." Whilst that opening gambit from the liner notes may worry anyone with a Phillip K.. Dick aversion, 'Xanthe Terra' can be enjoyed without a love of Mars Exploration Rover Projects, constituting as it does the culmination of Charlie Schmidt's time as a 'student' of the late John Fahey. All played with an expert's ease on the steel string guitar, Schmidt's pieces (each accompanied by extensive dissertations in the cover notes) range from the American Primitive atmosphere of 'Salem Journey' (Robbie Basho fans; heads up!) to the Stravinsky influenced 'Firebird'. Including a swampy cover of Fahey's 'Dance of the Inhabitants...', 'Xanthe Terra' is a treasure trove for those who already favour this genre and a gleaming find waiting to happen for those than don't.
