DF 47cd 


After the success of last year's Roy Montgomery album on Drunken Fish And Now The Rain..., and the first installment of Roy's singles compilation 324 E. 13th St. #7, The Allegory Of Hearing is set to bring even more adoration upon New Zealand's true "guitar hero." Recorded in Montgomery's harbor cottage in Lyttelton, NZ, during October 1998 on his trusty Tascam Porta One and mixed in January 2000, Allegory is a return to an instrumental palette first witnessed on his debut DFR CD Scenes From The South Island and Temple IV CD (Kranky). Armed with newly acquired Rickenbacker 12-string and vintage Farfisa electric organ, plus his usual Teisco, e-bow, and Quadraverb arsenal, RM has created eight short soundtracks of a particularly meditative nature. All, save one, clock in at under six minutes, making this a slightly more digestable dish for those with smaller appetites, but fans of Montgomery's high-profile contribution to Harmony of the Spheres collection will be pleased with the exception, "Resolution Island Suite," which clocks in at over 17 minutes, premiered at Terrastock II in San Francisco 1998, and appears here reworked in an instrumental form. Glorious.
