Portland-based guitarist Marisa Anderson returns with her seventh studio album, Cloud Corner, this time on Thrill Jockey Records, the independent American label home to Tortoise and Lightning Bolt. Classically trained, Anderson’s guitar is fluent in the lexicon of blues, jazz and folk, yet it seems to float above them all. She has carved out a unique place for herself in the landscape of contemporary American music. A visionary, Anderson presents a sound that is raw, nuanced and totally her own. From the off, ‘Pulse’ proves that Anderson’s grasp of instrumentation and composition on Cloud Corner will be hard to challenge. The title track is of a similar ilk, the melody formed from a cascade of fingerpicked notes. The use of the requinto jarocho on ‘Lift’ is also a highlight.
