Re: Tollefson, I dunno, Brian. You’re right about his presaging of the recent ambient guitar + FX trend. Prompted by your track, I just dug out his 2nd Hypnos album, Near and Far (1999!), and the first track “Field of Blackbirds” blows away a lot of these latecomers to the stretched-out ambient guitar table, not to mention patching beautifully into a post-GYBE!/Mogwai post-rock area that subtracts all the overblown rockist bombast, and leaves you with essence of guitar. Problem is that the rest of the album is spotty. The earlier New Eyes on the Universe has a few more tracks going for it, including your track, which is a beauty, but then again half of it is... I dunno... not that great, with the greatness of the other stuff in mind. Time for a comeback, with better quality control.
