In process of stocking


*2024 stock. 200 copies limited edition* "Talk West is the project of Dylan Aycock. Aycock has forged a small series of intriguing and beautiful missives through the cassette underground with his explorations on guitar and pedal steel. On Black Coral Sprig, Aycock negotiates the terrain between stately and homely by stretching a ringing country tone into an all-encompassing atmosphere, much like the ambient realms of Stars of the Lid. His unhurried, gentle playing style comes to reveal understated textures that weave into a whole alternately spirited, warming and often haunting." - Preservation

"Serene shades of Loren Connors and Bruce Langhorne's The Hired Hand in Dylan Aycock's (Talk West) Black Coral Sprig" - MOJO

..."lose your eyes and you’ll envision something you’ve lost as the guitar figures cascade in slow motion throughout “Willow And The Dogwood.” The viola phrases and resonant loops on “Light Black” might stir memories of something you have found, or someone who found you. And the passage of blurred keyboards before a backdrop of crackle and chimes on “Solitary Blossoms” will make you smell the smoke, feel the heat and recall whatever you learned around some fading fire. There’s no shortage of music out there that aims to become your psychological soundtrack, but this album delivers the goods." - Bill Meyer

"Coming off like a post-rock Loren Connors, Tulsa's Dylan Aycock (a.k.a. Talk West) plays a sort of disconnected blues, sparse and twinkly and replete with the American guitar idioms we all know and love" - Adhoc
