http://www.joyfulnoiserecordings.com/victor-villarreal-sleep-talk.html Perhaps best known as the pioneering guitarist behind the legendary groups Cap'n Jazz and Owls, Victor Villarreal is one of the most inventive guitarists of modern indie-rock. His unique guitar style includes elements of classical, Spanish, indie and even metal. Now on the heels of his reunion with Owls (Polyvinyl), Victor is back with his new solo long player, "Sleep Talk". "Sleep Talk" is Villarreal's second proper solo effort, and his first to enlist bassist (and early Joan of Arc member) Erik Bocek. Utilizing a "one man band" style of performance, the majority of "Sleep Talk" was recorded live in the studio, with Victor simultaneously performing guitar, percussion and vocals. Hinged on the tumbling rhythms of Villarreal's other-worldly guitar style, the tracks on "Sleep Talk" are diverse and moody, and will tickle your brain into a meditative stasis. 300 copies on clear and silver splatter - $15 Silver vinyl - $12 I saw him play some of these songs live when he opened for Owls over the summer. They sounded really cool. His first LP was pretty interesting as well.
