LOREN CONNORS; Blues: The Dark Paintings of Mark Rothko
LP, 2015 (New)
The newly resurrected Blues: The “Dark Paintings” of Mark Rothko is one of the more revelatory sets of Loren Connors’ career. Using only an electric guitar and a four-track recorder, Connors conjures the essence of a battered old 78, a song spit out by the horn of a hulking Victrola. He sings these blues with his fingers.
