Jim O’Rourke has been busy this week. After releasing eight albums’ worth of rare material the other day on Bandcamp, he has a new track up today. “Low Bow” is a supremely gorgeous piece that sounds a little reminiscent of O’Rourke’s excellent 2001 album I’m Happy, And I’m Singing, And A 1, 2, 3, 4. The track will be featured on Air Texture’s Air Texture III compilation, which also includes tracks from other wonderful guitar-deconstructors such as Fennesz and Oren Ambarchi (whom O’Rourke and Keiji Haino made a very different sounding record with earlier this year). Listen below.
Air Texture Vol. III is out 9/23 on Air Texture.
