Album Review: "The Simian River Collection (1980-2020)" By Carl Weingarten (9/10)

Multiphase Records

Producer: Carl Weingarten

Weingarten is an inventive guitarist, composer and technician who took on the arduous task of compiling his best works over the span of 30 independent albums. He methodically categorizes them into Disc 1 (“All Things Return”— Electronic guitar looping), Disc 2 (“Hand in the Sand”—Assorted acoustic sounds) and Disc 3 (“The Simian River”—Progressive/jazzy textures). It’s an aural buffet that is well suited to headphones and an altered state of mind. – Eric Harabadian
