Doug Gillard – Call From Restricted

GBV alum releases another excellent solo record. Opening track Time Is Nigh strikes as an acoustic Echoes Myron initially, then morphs quickly into something else equally listenable. From there the album progresses through lovely and creative monster riffs and blistering solos, strong (and, as expected, slightly wonky in a beautiful way) songs throughout. So good to hear this man’s guitar in action again.

I had an interesting time acquiring this record. It was only available on Amazon.com (not .ca), and it’s the first time I’ve been aware that CDs can be printed upon ordering. That’s got to save a lot of storage space and, as James pointed out, may be the difference for some artists as to whether their record sees release or not. Still, the packaging is credible, devoid of label info except Amazon’s name above a single bar code. Neat! Have I just seen the future? Maybe!

I always say you should buy these GBV-related records, and I am always right! Trust the KMA! We love you!
