Loren Connors – Hell's Kitchen Park
The first in a planned series of reissues of Connors' guitar suites, this LP on Dutch imprint Enabling Works captures the man in the throes of his contemplative shorter works. The sound on HKP is much
cleaner than Connors would trend towards in the future but still imbued with his uncanny ability to capture the heart of loneliness in electrified string. The album may be broken up into twelve tracks but they seethe and swim and shuffle like bedraggled occupants of the park that gave the album its name. Connors has always had a way with melancholy, conjuring grey skies in a matter of a few notes better than most could within the space of an entire song. The vinyl reissue is adorned with a striking photograph of the park and pressed to 180g. No clear word on what other works from this period are slated for repress but no doubt they'll sound just as good. Fingers crossed for 9th Ave and Moonyean to make the cut.
