"No one until now has proposed an amalgamation of the music of Bert Jansch, Leo Kottke, John Fahey, Joni Mitchell, Jimi Hendrix and Karlheinz Stockhausen. By attaching beads, rings and other objects to her acoustic guitar strings, and producing an album of strangely beautiful tunes and ambiences, Denver based guitarist Feder has managed just that. The 'prepared' guitar can send out chiming noises reminiscent of oriental percussion, unexpected out-of-tune twangs, or mimic the distant plunking of an extra-terrestrial harp. Arranged as a suite of gently oscillating tunes, the album also occasionally deploys drum machines and electric bass to summon up the spirit of the Durrutti Column. Central to the project, though, is Feder's playing and composing; whether engrossed in a Jansch-like fingerpicking folk tune, or a more on the edge bottleneck scraping session, Feder produces music, noises and sounds which are never less than captivating and seductive."
