Falling Water Shimmering Strings

Falling Water Shimmering Strings by Chris Haugen

Chris Haugen, a real find for Real Music, plays an assortment of guitars, including Weissenborn and lap steel, as well as banjo (banjo? On a Real Music recording?), keyboards, and drum loops. Three other musicians are here as well: Ben Leinbach on bass guitar, Mark Degli Antoni on keys, and Hans Christian on sarangi, udu, and drones. Haugen has a passion for surfing (and yoga) and I can hear this influence in the languid, liquid-like nature of these seven songs. You might not believe that lap steel can yield relaxing sounds, but in Haugen's hands, it happens. The album is equally ambient as New Age.
