Connors is an avant-garde legend, his singular alien take on the blues is considered on par with John Fahey’s rewrite of American string music. Connors’ previous vinyl releases for Family Vineyard quickly sold out. Just months after reviving The Departing of a Dream series from a ten-year hiatus -- Loren Connors issues another movement of saturated guitar tones, dissonance and impermanence. Volume Six begins with the percussive sound of struck, muted strings -- an unusually rhythmic effect for one of Connors solo recordings, writes Kurt Gottschalk in The Wire. But from there, Connors’ guitar notes morph into gentle wisps of guitar sounds -- or as Connors himself describes: “just like the wind scattering the notes around.”
