Still on the fence? Here's CvC's words about this beauty:
"Crow Versus Crow is proud to present a new record from ex-Shield Your Eyes guitarist and vocalist, Stef Ketteringham.
Utilising electric and acoustic guitar, four-track tape recorder, bass drum and scant vocal flourishes, 'More Guitar Arrangements' further develops the experimental approach to expanded Blues of Stef’s previous record, 'Guitar Arrangements' (Romac Puncture Repairs, 2016). For this music is THE BLUES - in the truest sense of a joyful, melancholic expression of the ineffable existential condition we find ourselves within, rather than a stylistic exercise in genre convention. This is a highly personal, subjective language being used to express everything that THE BLUES is of.
'More Guitar Arrangements' consists of ten raw, semi-improvised, live recordings - both radically reworked versions of skeletal compositions from 'Guitar Arrangements', such as 'Killing Flaw', 'Divide' and 'Pound'; along with previously unreleased titles, including two dramatically different takes of 'Cargill / Grimes'.
This reworking of compositions, and the refusal of stasis it implies, is a key element throughout the work of Stef Ketteringham. Improvisations based on skeletal structures, the constant redefining and re-experiencing of compositions is mirrored in the fluidity of the techniques used to extract sound from the instruments. The frenetic, swelling clusters of notes and percussive rhythms snap open from the tipping point of total dissonance to heart-wrenching melancholic melody; neither de-, nor re-constructed, abstraction and melodic clarity shifting focus in constant flux."
