I posted last year about Bay Area duo Barn Owl's hypnotic, droney doom-folk guitar. Barn Owl's Jon Porras has a solo LP titled "Black Mesa" coming out on the Thrill Jockey label next month. The song featured in the video above, titled "The Black Tide," isn't included on Black Mesa but I'm told it is in the same vein of fuzzy, meditative California guitar weirdness that flows through the new record.
