Marisa Anderson - Shrunken Planet/WFMU, April 28, 2012
Excellent recent session from this Portland-based guitarist. It’s been a good year for guitar soli kinda things, but my absolute favorite might just be Anderson’s Mercury, which digs deep into gospel, blues and folk and comes up with something wholly original and wonderful. A lacing of tremelo (a la Pops Staples), impeccable timing, a hint of dissonance and plenty of gorgeous, plaintive melodies. Perfecto.
