Rafael Toral - Sound Mind Sound Body 2xLP
Label: Drag City
Rafael Toral is a Portuguese experimental guitarist given much critical acclaim by Lee Ranaldo and Jim O'Rourke (who reissued Sound Mind Sound Body on CD in the '90s). Lush ambient guitar drones cross the likes of My Bloody Valentine's gliding sound, Eno's mid-'70s ambient work and John Fahey's avant-plucking. First-time vinyl release features an expanded version of these classic pieces.
