The Communion Label is pleased to release the second album by North Carolina trio Idyll Swords, titled II - almost an hour of natural and fluid American folk and blues, along with the buzzy and sublime sounds of India, Persia and Turkey, all baked by three hot-shit guitarists: Dave Brylawski played guitar in Polvo and has recently completed his masters in social work at Columbia. Chuck Johnson played in Spatula and continues to work with innumerable other projects, including the Micro-East Collective, modelled after the Mills College-based Micro-Collective. Chuck is also studying Hindustani classical music with noted sarod-player K. Sridhar and a Hindustani vocal teacher. Grant Tennille is the quiet genius type, responsible for some of the most epic 'Swords work, and likes to collect bootlegs on the Internet. For those who have to put the peg in the hole, well, he does session work for Trans Am, all right? The Swords' music is stunning, influenced by many worlds while retaining the flavor of its own place. Those who'd like to take Pocahantas back to the city will be thrilled to introduce this charming entity to their friends. References: the Takoma Records triumvirate (Fahey, Basho, Kottke), Vishwan Mohan Bhatt, Davey Graham, the kudzu plant, a train ride in Rajhastan, the smell of wood powder and spice, Ankara International Airport.
