Gardner picks up his guitar again for the amiably shaggy Flowers in Space, an album of four low-key liquid jams that all stretch out around the ten-minute mark. Recorded at the same 2019 Black Dirt sessions featured on Gardner’s excellent 2021 self-titled solo cassette, Flowers in Space further demonstrates the guitarist’s virtual telepathy with bassist Andy Cush (of Garcia Peoples) and drummer Ryan Jewell (of pretty much everything). It was unexpected treat to get another slab of sympathetic magic from what amounts to a veritable dad psych supergroup.
Further adventures from the Elkhorn crew. First, the self-titled new outing from Drew Gardner, the electric half, who’s joined by Ryan Jewell and Andy Cush for a set of laid-back instrumental workouts. Then, Elkhorn’s live gem Southern Star, recorded early in 2020.
