City of Refuge

type
  • Music

Still intent on retaining his title as the least predictable folk guitarist of all time, the notoriously eccentric John Fahey returns with a set of fret scrapings, woodsy pluckings, and unplugged improvisations. On City of Refuge, Fahey’s idiosyncratic style can lead to dark, glistening pieces like the title track — but also, alas, to indulgences like a 20-minute sound collage of static. Call it bizarro Windham Hill.
