Fire Talk is psyched to announce the addition of ambient guitar wizard 1970s Film Stock to the roster. His Fire Talk debut "Birds" sees the light August 11th on CD/CS/Digital. Head toward IMPOSE to read a glowing write up & stream the title track. Pre orders flying now!
North Carolina based guitarist Eddie Garcia lays down hard on the altar of pedal worship, drowning audiences in a fuzzy wash of guitars that stagger between beauty and chaos. Experimental and shoegaze sound collages rub up against finger-picked melodies and sustained drones. 1970s Film Stock is often described as cinematic, with looping ambient textures, improvisation, skewed hooks, and live composition that work as a soundtrack of a lost film.
“Birds” is a meditation on ambient guitar music, recalling like minded modern fore-bearers of the genre a la Mark McGuire (Emeralds), Jeffre Cantu Ledesma & Dustin Wong. Doubling down on the aesthetic & filtering in a fresh American Primitive bent. This is true transport music hitting heady start to finish. Broken, epic & swirling - Fire Talk is proud to make available 1970s Film Stock’s latest work on CD &Cassette in extremely limited quantities August 11th 2017.
"He powers his individual abstraction with fondness for Alan Licht and Derek Bailey, his guitar crying, sighing and screaming broken riffs and dissonant themes" - Grayson Currin, Indy Week
