It’s probably safe to assume that we’ve got a lot of guitar geeks who follow us here at Heavy Blog. If you’ve recently become overwhelmed with the sheer amount of new heavy material and are finding yourself in a rut for finding some more laid back jams, we’ve got you covered. Straight out of the beautifully-historic Charleston, South Carolina, comes solo Artist Se’nam Palmer, a self-proclaimed “shredgaze” artist who has just laid down a whole slew of hypnotic loops, relaxing dweedles and a whole bunch of terrific atmospheres. Check it out below!
While most of the songs in this 15-track, untitled EP don’t go over the two minute mark, there’s still plenty of moments to really sink your musical teeth into and get lost in. Built on the foundation of this being performed by one man, one guitar, and a whole shitload of pedals, this EP is a terrific way to try to deliver memorable material while still exploring in minimalistic ideas and not getting overwhelmed with an unhealthy amount of guitar tracks. Don’t get it confused though; there’s still an ample of amount of layering that could put even some of the instrument’s most seasoned players to shame. Sometimes it feels like certain tracks could have been expanded upon a bit more, but it’s forgivable considering the experimental nature of the release and its bedroom-recording means.
That being said, if you’re hungry for a great and brief new piece of curious guitar looping, you’ve got it right here. If the idea of a guy who probably spends just as much time jamming video game music and Hiatus Kaiyote as he does Animals as Leaders and Scale the Summit, then you’ve come to the right place!
