Amoeba Review

11/19/2012

If you share my vast appreciation for twangy, echoey guitar ambience from the Durutti Column to Eno/Lanois, and Rachel's and Ry Cooder, not to mention John Fahey, Santo & Johnny and the Penguin Cafe Orchestra, then Balmorhea will be your new favorite band. Though they call themselves a "minimalist instrumental ensemble," this is richly harmonic, classically inspired, building and flowing music from a couple of seriously talented Austin cats. Rob Lowe (different Rob Lowe) and Michael Muller, enhanced by an expressive string section, craft moving, melodic guitar-led journeys, with Philip Glass-esque repetition that builds to Morricone-worthy cinematic climaxes. I thought this kind of thing had been quite unfashionable since the mid-'80s -- it's great to see some new kids digging into the EG Records sound.
