beyond beyond is beyond 2016, edition of 100

"folk/psych-rock guitar duo, Jesse Sheppard on twelve-string acoustic and Drew Gardner on electric, interweaves extended folk tradition with psychedelic improvisation. They move freely between several different traditions; from American Primitive to Psychedelic Rock, from Hindustani to Mauritanian, from Krautrock to Jazz; multilayered music that shifts fluidly from pre-rock to post-rock, from the 1860s to the 1960s and beyond." - ELKHORN bandcamp

smoky extended electric guitar solos anchored to acoustic rhythm backbones, kinda makes me think SANDY BULL meets LIGHTNIN HOPKINS but with more heavy 70s oomph, like a sky high collaboration between BEN CHASNY and JUSTIN WRIGHT takin turns on lead and rhythm, or maybe like WOODEN SHJIPS frontman RIPLEY JOHNSON on a serious HENDRIX kick backed by STEVEN R. SMITH at his bluesiest fusing stripped down acoustic SPACEMEN 3 guitar mantra with FUNKADELIC's MAGGOT BRAIN mind blowing title track, meandering some of the same territory as JENKS MILLER & ROSE CROSS NC which might as well be my back yard
