"Serene shades of Loren Connors and Bruce Langhorne's The Hired Hand in Dylan Aycock's (Talk West) Black Coral Sprig" - MOJO

Coming off like a post-rock Loren Connors, Tulsa's Dylan Aycock (a.k.a. Talk West) plays a sort of disconnected blues, sparse and twinkly and replete with the American guitar idioms we all know and love. On the eleven-minute "Willow and The Dogwood," from Talk West's upcoming debut LP, Black Coral Sprig, tape hiss fills in the negative space between Aycock's melodic noodling, making for a warm atmosphere that hints at the anthemic aspirations of and act like, say, Explosions In The Sky, without the arena-filling histrionics. "Willow and The Dogwood" is subtle and restrained-- uplifting, certainly, but not as straightforward. It would have worked well in an episode of Friday Night Lights. -Adhoc
