Marisa Anderson, Plankton Wat and Ecstatic Cosmic Union

The resurgence of John Fahey/American Primitive-style solo guitarists over the last few years has provided fans of the folk/blues idiom with a surfeit of new music to revel in. We are lucky to have two of the best instrumentalists of this ilk living in our fair city, and they both play tonight at Little Axe Records. Marisa Anderson has just returned from a tour in support of her brilliant 2013 LP Mercury, which finds her trading in both reverb-heavy strutting and chilling acoustic-guitar reserve. A similar mood runs through the work of Plankton Wat, the musical moniker of former Eternal Tapestry member Dewey Mahood. His most recent LP, Drifter's Temple, wends in his long interest in psychedelia and the occasional excursion into much noisier territory. ROBERT HAM
