Tom Caufield: Things I Heard In The Womb album review

Album Review

US acoustic guitarist Tom Caufield’s excursions into new age, via Spain.

Since making the stylistic shift from confessional folk-rock singer-songwriter in the 00s to instrumental acoustic specialist in recent years, Michigan-born, LA-based guitarist Tom Caufield has built a modest but enthusiastic fanbase in the US. This is his first UK release, which came out in 2015 back home, and consists of just three tracks: lasting 23, three, and 11 minutes respectively. On hearing these softly meandering meditations – full of deftly plucked Spanish guitar, clad in twittering Moog and sequenced strings – you might just drift off into your own private reverie and not notice when one piece ends and the next begins.
