BDOAFrom the depths of upstate New York’s Black Dirt Studio emerges this free-folk collective, a loose affiliation of players including Steve Gunn, Nathan Bowles (Pelt and the Black Twig Pickers), Margot Bianca (Flown), Jimy SeiTang (Psychic Ills) and several others. A “super group,” perhaps, but there’s no star performer here, just a group following the sound, picking up disparate elements from ancient Appalachian folk, tranced-out dub, and oddball kraut rock. The resulting LP, Wayawanda Patent, is all over the place, but in a good way. Check out the hypnotic “Florian’s Wind Up,” with its spidery banjo and clacking percussion for a taste of Black Dirt. words/ t wilcox
