Talisman (LP)

Label: Otic

Format: LP

Genre: Experimental

In stock

Debut release on reissue label Otic curated by mastering engineer and musician Joshua Stevenson (Otic Sound, Staked Plain, Von Bingen, Cast Exotic Archives, JOMF).

Talisman was originally released 1995 on Alastair's own label 'Next Best Way.' It was the debut CD on his imprint and has never been issued on vinyl. Having been charmed by this album since its release, Otic is proud to release this seminal work on vinyl for the first time. Featuring guest appearances by Nigel Bunn, Shayne Carter, and David Mitchell.

"Talisman is probably Galbraith's first masterpiece, which builds upon the strengths of Plagal Grind, his previous release Morse and work with “A Handful of Dust.” It's darker, more experimental, but still blessed with the brittle beauty of Galbraith's most confessional sketches: the black bile of 'Policeman on Ether' is washed away forthwith by the soothing chords of 'Coast Road'."- audioculture Galbraith's solo career has included numerous early cassettes and 7"s on Xpressway label, as well as albums on labels such as Corpus Hermeticum, Siltbreeze, Drag City, Emperor Jones, Time Lag, Feel Good All Over and Table of the Elements. He has also recorded ten albums with Bruce Russell (Dead C) under the name A Handful of Dust.
