"James Ginzburg is known as Emptyset, his project with the curator Paul Purgas, a brutalist exploration of the outer limits of modern industrial techno. And now there's something really different, something at quite the opposite end of the musical spectrum: a solo acoustic folk record. Dance music has always been the sound of the city, thus it's no surprise that his journey into traditional songwriting saw him wandering into the countryside. Faint Wild Light lies in the bucolic tradition of Simon & Garfunkel, Nick Drake and Crosby, Stills, & Nash, but this is not a work of journeyman nostalgia; the wandering has a genuinely fevered tone, a desperation to be totally lost in some potential inner arcadia, isolated from a computerized production process. Equally it's no minimal Pink Moon; it sounds more like a 60's folk troubadour produced by a contemporary hip hop impresario, which in some ways it is." (label info)
