Nigel Gavin: Thrum (Ode)

Auckland-based guitarist Nigel Gavin has appeared previously on Elsewhere -- see tag -- so it would be remiss if not downright rude to overlook this reissue of his excellent '03 solo album, which went largely ignored at the time as it came out on the small, independent Rouge label.

Now getting national distribution through Ode, Thrum deserves the widest appreciation, especially if Visitation won you as much as it did me.
