amsterdam guitarists mark morse and jeroen kimman normally have their fingers in a diverse array of musical pies: free improv, chamber ensembles, hardcore noise, avant-pop; but for their first collaboration they chose to narrow their focus on a thoroughly unlikely subject, 1950s alabama heartbreak duo/close harmony pioneers the louvin brothers. the result is an idiosyncratic instrumental reinterpretation of charlie and ira's music: equal parts attempted guitar wizardry, novelty-song, texture-weaving and open-eared improvisation. but ultimately the overwhelming directive had to be their respect for and love of the original music, and it's through this final filter that their debut acronym/album PTLBS Vol. 1 becomes sleep gunner's playful and plaintive attempt to break their own modern conceptualist hearts.
