originally released as a limited lp (edition of 100) from blackest rainbow.

2011 - Best Debut

I purchased “Kerning” quite impulsively during one of Eclipse Records big sales during the year (thanks Ed!!). Looking back, I’m actually rather surprised I bought this as I thought I was completely through with hearing another “American Primitive” guitar record. I mean, at that stage, I would have rather just put on a John Fahey or a Jack Rose album and called it a day. But “Kerning” is such a unique and moving work of, yes, American Primitive minimalism, though acoustic guitar album it is not. Yantis’s guitar playing can rival Barn Owl’s in terms of sheer drone intensity and, at other turns, be as delicate and melodic as Loren Connors. But through his use of sculpted noise and feedback, along with subtle piano and banjo accompaniment, Yantis crafted something entirely his own on this debut. The world will not end in 2012, but it likely will be The Year of Yantis. – David Perron, Foxy Digitalis
