iTunes Review

William Tyler has worked with Lambchop, Bonnie "Prince" Billy, and Silver Jews, and his 2013 solo album Impossible Truth was released by the notable indie rock label Merge Records. Still, his own music has little to do with those associations. His majestic guitar work belongs alongside Leo Kottke and Glenn Branca, such are the wonders of Tyler's playing. Recorded and mixed at Beech House in Nashville and co-produced by Tyler and Mark Nevers, Impossible Truth was inspired by two books Tyler read while on tour: Barney Hoskyns' Hotel California (about the '70s Laurel Canyon music scene in Los Angeles) and Mike Davis' The Ecology of Fear (which discusses the history of the destruction of L.A., both real and imagined). The 10-minute "The World Set Free" deals in feedback and apocalypse, while "Country of Illusion" weaves a nine-minute mystery that approaches raga. "The Geography of Nowhere" yanks on a mean electric blues guitar. "We Can't Go Home Again" and "A Portrait of Sarah" yield acoustic revelations.
