Alastair Galbraith - Mirrorwork (1998)

Alastair Galbraith is a visionary, lonesome singer from New Zealand and his albums breath a calm loneliness that can be found in the work of The Mountain Goats and The Microphones, and more of these American indie acts. What Alastair Galbraith does though, is to be on his own for the whole 24 songs on this album. You feel he's playing, inventing and trying these songs in front of you, just for the fun of entertaining you as an individual.

And that's what makes this album very special. 24 short to very short, minimalistic acoustic guitar tracks, with some noise added to it. A very overwhelming experience, which redefines the meaning of lo-fi recording.
