More Info

"MICHAEL GIRA ist bekannt fr seine Arbeit mit THE ANGELS OF LIGHT sowie den SWANS und trug als ein Teil des Young Gods Labels zur Entdeckung von DEVENDRA BANHART, AKRON/FAMILY und MI & L'AU bei. Auf seinem Solowerk treffen sich Gitarre und Gesang in MICHAEL GIRAs Heimstudio und demonstrieren auf eindrucksvolle Weise, wie GIRA klingt, wenn er sich nicht in verschiedenste Soundschichten wickelt. "Songs For A Dog" ist strengstens auf 2000 Stck limitiert und wird in keinem anderen Format erhltlich sein. //
A collection of solo songs by New York City's prolific MICHAEL GIRA (SWANS, ANGELS OF LIGHT, Young God Records). On Songs for a Dog, Gira has collected ten tracks that catch him in his purest form. Mostly built around his guitar and voice in a home studio environment, the songs here both expose the very kernels from which he usually works from and illustrate only too perfectly how they can function without the layers of sound he's also often fond of exploring. More importantly, these songs capture an artist who seems forever capable of pushing himself into new avenues and whose laurels consistently get cast aside in the process." [press release]
