Charalambides: Unknown Spin
Charalambides: Unknown Spin
Artist Charalambides
Album Unknown Spin
Label Kranky Records
Released 11/3/2003
Unknown Spin was recorded live to tape by Christina Carter, Tom Carter and Heather Leigh Murray in May, 2002 and released prior to the newly expanded trio's first East Coast/Midwest tour. As such, this album is a great introduction to Charalambides' new modus operandi; an improvised minimalism that comes from guitar, pedal steel guitar and the haunting, wordless vocals of Christina Carter and Heather Murray. In addition to the excellence of the music itself, Unknown Spin gives listeners some hints of what the upcoming Charalambides studio album might sound like.
