Tom Carter and Pat Murano Jam at Black Dirt Studio

For the past few months, Upstate New York's Black Dirt Studio has been host to a series of one-off collaborations between some of underground music's most talented unsung heroes, from Steve Gunn and Black Twig Pickers to Pigeons, Dave Shuford, and Margot Bianca. For the fourth installment of Natch, as the series is called, founding engineer Jason Meagher brought together Charalambides guitar wizard Tom Carter and No Neck Blues Band mainstay Pat Murano, whose Decimus project was recently featured on this site by Mutant Sounds' Eric Lumbleau. The 3-track session, available for download via the Free Music Archive, ranges from droney atmospherics and crackling found sound collages to unhinged collisions of industrial texture and burnished guitar squeal, like on "Emir of Hammadan," below.
