Tabernacle's two volume collection is electric guitar as percussion music. Steady repetitive strums ring out their minimal tonalities and stay in one headspace. Tabernacle's recordings are like setting Marfa, TX to the routines of a guitar student, in his bedroom or basement, who loves hitting the instrument without learning anything past the act of strumming noise. If you dig this kinda thing, the label tells me their tapes are currently sold out via Tomentosa, but another batch might soon be on the way. Keep yr eyes and eardrums open.
