Location Ensemble CD now available on Tape Drift Records

Debut release from this upstate NY guitar ensemble. Seven or eight guitarists and a rhythm section thundering through a delicious set of heavily Branca, Ranaldo, and Chatham-inspired pieces. Massed electric guitars building to ecstatic peaks. No wave, drone, minimalism, maximalism, it's all in there, but given fresh life. This release captures one of the group's rare live sets, performing three original works. Players were Matt Weston, Ray Hare, Thomas Lail, Holland Hopson, Eric Hardiman, Patrick Weklar, Howard Glassman, Tara Fracalossi, and Jason Martin.
