PETER KRIS “Sprawl and Sky” (A Giant Fern)

The full potential of the guitar has finally been realized. Instead of just rehashing the same old chords over and over, some musicians choose to do more. Peter Kris, best known for his work with the band German Army, is one of those musicians. On “Sprawl and Sky” he varies from the melodic (example track: “Few”) to the chaotic (example track: “Disregard Answers”).  It’s hard to believe the same guy and same instrument are responsible for all of the output on the tape. But sure enough, Kris has proven that with a guitar in his hands he is capable of getting the sound he wants out of it.
Unfortunately for those looking for a physical copy, it appears all 50 have sold out.
