One Feather Shy, the new instrumental solo album from guitarist Loren Claypool is released today! The album of "genre-indifferent instrumental guitar music" is available in our online music store!

Jun 28, 2008
We are proud to announce One Feather Shy, the new instrumental solo album from guitarist Loren Claypool. Guitarist is, perhaps, an understatement as Loren plays acoustic, electric, baritone electric, fretless electric, lap steel, baritone lap steel, touch and synthesizer guitars across eighteen songs on this release. The album is available for preorder now in our online music store! All preorders will be autographed!

The description "genre-indifferent instrumental guitar music" is appropriate for this work, as Loren crosses musical boundaries with little regard for convention. Sometimes delicate, sometimes aggressive, the music is textural, visual, thoughtful, and emotional. Moving from spaghetti western to ambient, from progressive to melodic, from sparse arrangements to densely orchestrated compositions with over a dozen tracks of guitar, each song is fascinating on its own, but clearly an integral part of the larger work.

One Feather Shy is as diverse tonally as it is musically. Loren is fascinated with the sounds that can be made with the instruments he plays. He is just as likely to ferociously manipulate a guitar's sound as he is to preserve the traditional tone of the instrument. The result is a unique sonic approach to instrumental guitar music. And, on this recording, it's all guitar.

Clayphonic Records™ will be released One Feather Shy on August 26th.

Loren Claypool has created a new record label with the primary purpose of releasing his music. Clayphonic Records™ will proudly release and promote Loren's debut solo album with a target release of July, 2008. The title of the album has not yet been announced.

The project is well underway as of this writing, with nearly half of the recording complete. Loren is recording in the friendly confines of Make Noise Studios. Stay up-to-date on Loren's progress via his oft-updated blog in the news section over at lorenclaypool.com.

Clayphonic Records™ will coordinate distribution of Loren's release through established online music retailers such as CD Baby, legal download services such as iTunes, and the soon-to-be-launched online music store on this very website.
