British combo Rameses III created the mellow and dreamy ambient guitar
vignettes of the EP Folk Hymns (Firefly Recordings, 2003),
of the mini-album Jozepha (2004), and of the mini-album
Parsimonia (Foxy Digitalis, 2004), their most ambitious work.
More intense drones and field recordings disturbed that transcendent quiet on
Matanuska (Music Fellowship, 2006), containing the lengthy
Before The Rains Fall (For Ed Cooke), Parsimonia
and Queens Road Cemetery - 28th March 2005,
and on the EP Honey Rose (Important, 2007).
The double-disc Basilica (Important Records, 2008) consisted of a disc of Origins recorded both live and in studio and a disc of remixes.
I Could Not Love You More (Type, 2009) pushed the boundaries of
John Fahey's original intuition (of free-form narrative guitarscapes).
Across The Lake Is Where My Heart Shines
is not only slow to the point of falling asleep
but also gentle and delicate like a children's lullaby.
Mostly it's the sound effects that set Ramuses III apart from other guitar
A shroud of crackling noise envelops the psychedelic wails of the guitar in
The sound of water is co-protagonist of the velvety pastoral vignette No Water No Moon.
A flow of metallic tones plays with a placid drone in
The Kindness In Letting Go.
The peak of pathos is achieved with the
elegant accordion-like "om" of We Shall Never Sing Of Sorrow
and the stately organ-like "om" of I Could Not Love You More.
The undulating All Shall Be Well, with a drone that is secreted off
the human voice, seems like the answer to those invocations.
The duo of Spencer Grady and Steven Lewisi also formed Padang Food Tigers and
released the EP
Go Down Moses (Under The Spire, 2010) and the album
Born Music (Blackest Rainbow, 2011).
