Henry Flynt

Raga electric

This album is another chapter in the life of avant-hillbilly Henry Flynt, this time documenting his more experimental recordings. The centrepiece of the record is a slightly unnerving collection of howls, judders and raspberries unnervingly titled ‘Central Park Transverse Vocal #1-4’ – luckily there is more on the cd than this though, I can’t say the squealing does a lot for me other than irritate. However, ‘Raga Electric’ is clearly the standout track and does pretty much exactly what it says on the tin, an electric guitar raga jam that’s as deep as you’d hope from Flynt, mixing his usual lofi style with a classic raga form. Hard work at times, but important work, and when you think about when this was recorded, all the more remarkable.
