BILLY WYLDER // Strike The Match [Sand & Gold Records]

The music weaves together American folk and rock with sensibilities from the Sahara Desert: think Andrew Bird meets Ali Farka Toure, Pete Seeger and Talking Heads.  Gritty tunes with western twang surely influenced by Middle Eastern guitar and sitar stylings for intricate guitar riffs that echo Salloway’s fellow Rhode Islanders, the Barr Brothers, while staying 100% original.

RIYL: Andrew Bird, Bombino, Paul Simon, The Barr Brothers, Pete Seeger, Talking Heads,
RECOMMENDED TRACKS: #1, #4, #8, #3, #10
