Lovely second set of tracks from the entirely unusual duo of Jesse Sparhawk (38 string lever harp) and Eric Carbonara (22 string upright Chaturangui guitar, banjo, nylon string guitar). The four tracks here are restrained and unhurried, letting the elegant string flow breathe and build over each cut. Like on their debut Sixty Strings (vhf#129), there's tons of virtuoso playing, but it's not showy and crass. The guys are more mood builders (deep, cosmic, meditative) than doodlers. What's best about this is that even tho' it's immediately graspable by those of us who like "our kind" of music, it really doesn't sound like anyone else - a rare achievement. Along with the main dialog between the two players, the arrangements are filled out with percussion by Peterson Goodwyn, giving some of the tracks an overt groove that cuts against the spiraling string notes. Beautiful.
