David Grubbs, from Louisville, Kentucky, made an impact on the indie world during a prolonged residence in Chicago. He was in the likes of Gastr del Sol with Jim O’Rourke, The Red Krayola and he’s an artist in his own right. The Wired Salutation is consistent with Grubbs’ solo work, in the sense of its trembling ambience. From what the synopsis says, this appears to be a pure one-off – this was a live recording. It includes a download, but I’m not seeing a digital/CD release in sight. If you like what you hear, you better get while the gettin’s good folks. This piece goes with the records that’ll be going for a pretty penny down the line due to their obscurity and strange nature. The Wired Salutation is fit to go with any aliens that are popping in your humble place of residence for a quick visit.
