Vancouver’s City explores a dynamic range of prepared electric guitar sculpted into icy miniatures, with input from i.o, for a quietly engrossing return to their spiritual home, Ascetic House.

Operating at liminal levels of sensitivity, City coaxes out exceedingly sparing melodic figures from prepared and processed guitars that appear to resemble synths or even slowed down details of a Durutti Column composition. Restraint and space are key to the beauty of the thirteen works on offer, tiling concise, ephemeral vignettes with a handful of longer works where he allows the notes to ring out into unobstructed space.

The textures and shape of the strings shift with an elemental quality across the set, from pointillist glitter to cold sogginess, windswept aeriel harmonics, exquisite piquant dissonance, crafty Middle eastern microtonal tunings, and two folksier charms with i.o, perhaps most spellbinding in the arctic plangency of ‘Body Of Hell’, and the pineal squeezer ‘Claim Your Home.’ -- Boomkat
