I love moody guitar music. In an earlier mix, Mysterioso, I included a cut by Dead Combo. Their music was new to me. I was interested to learn from a listener, Jorge, that they are from Portugal and have achieved cult status there.
Jorge directed me to a mix he'd done with a Dead Combo track. I love the mix, give it a listen https://www.mixcloud.com/jorgempaulino/here-it-begins
His other mixes are excellent as well.
After hearing his mix I just knew I had to create a guitar based mix that was a bit spaghetti western and dusty, moody, twangy with a little Latin feel. And of course ambient touches. The result is this new mix, Guitarissimo. I stole that title from an album by Roxy Music guitarist, Phil Manzanera, who also has a track in the mix. I tried not to steal too much from the "Here It Begins" mix but I just had to use the Yo La Tengo song from that mix in this one too.
Tracklist is in the comments.
