The name Kirill Nikolai may (or may not) be familiar to you. He is a member of Still Light an experimental folk trio featuring the considerable talents of Lucy Hague and Sand Snowman. Still Light released their "Lything" debut album first on Apollolaan Recordings and then reissued on vinyl on the wonderful tonefloat label.
For this superb release Kirill has collaborated with guitarist Colin Treiber. This two EP set contains recordings from October 2010 and Spring 2011. The first EP has three acoustic pieces. The second EP contains five tracks, consisting of three acoustic pieces divided by two field recordings. In Kirill's words "a kind of homage to John Fahey". This double 3" cdr set comes in a selection of rustic handmade cloth pouches.
