Review for Tom Carter: 

Tom Carter's electric guitar work weaves spare strands of melody and fuzz into towering long-form drones, sculpting a rich landscape of intricately detailed instant compositions from both high-volume grit and charged silence.

Although best known for his work with iconoclastic acid-folk improvisers Charalambides, which he co-founded with Christina Carter in 1991, Tom Carter has focused on solo performances and recordings since 2012. His 2015 double LP on Three Lobed Records "Long Time Underground" is the final installment of a trilogy begun in 2009 with "The Dance From Which All Dances Come" and continued with 2014's "Numinal Entry." "Long Time Underground" was selected as the number-one experimental album of 2015 by The Out Door/Pitchfork. 

Tom Carter frequently collaborates with other musicians. His regular projects include a duo with No Neck Blues Band co-founder Pat Murano, free-rock improvisers Eleven Twenty-Nine (Carter, Marc Orleans, and Michael Evans), Spiderwebs (with Houston guitarist Sandy Ewen), Sarin Smoke (with Peter Swanson), Badgerlore (with Rob Fisk, Ben Chasny, and others), and various ensembles with Bay Area sound artist and composer Robert Horton. 

Other fellow travelers have included Gate, Thurston Moore, Loren Connors, Jandek, Bardo Pond, Steve Gunn, Helena Espvall, Matt Valentine and many others.

Every day, without exception, I find a number of “treats” in my daily dose of email.

Think of it as sort of a “co-op” for my readers to enjoy. When The Saturday Funnies began last summer, it was what I still think is ... (click for more)
