GRUBBS, DAVID - A GUESS AT THE RIDDLE (CD)


"David Grubbs has worked simultaneously at records of songs and records of longer, immersive instrumental pieces. A Guess At The Riddle is a record of songs. It feels like an unburdening. Matching experimentation with articulateness, A Guess At The Riddle is to David's other solo records what Gastr del Sol's Camoufleur was to their preceding records. One finds acoustic instruments (David's piano and Nikos Veliotls's cello) brokering peace agreements with electronics (Matmos), one finds full bands going full-bore (Adam Pierce and Thomas Belhom kicking ass behind the drums, David returning to the electric guitar, David's freshest, most lively-sounding production), and one finds David's strongest collection of songs."
