(Otic) LP $30.00

Originally self-released on CD (Next Best Way, 1995), “Talisman is Galbraith’s first masterpiece,” according to our friends at Audioculture. It “builds upon the strengths of Plagal Grind, his previous solo release Morse, and collaborative work with Bruce Russell as A Handful of Dust. It’s darker, more experimental, but still blessed with the brittle beauty of Galbraith’s most confessional sketches.” Guests include Nigel Bunn, Shayne Carter, and David Mitchell.
