“Chuck Johnson’s impact on the contemporary guitar
world continues to be felt. His first two solo records signaled
the arrival of a unique player, steeped in various forms
of playing and influence, yet distinctly modern. Johnson
eschews a weathered traditionalism for the wide-scope
expanse of 21st Century Americana.
“On his third album, Blood Moon Boulder, Johnson
reaches a compositional peak in a nod to the picturesque
naturalism of the American landscape. The dynamics of
his range can be felt on this singular record, a soundtracklike
listen that rewards the ear with rich detail.
“His precision and tone recall the heights of Ry Cooder’s
Paris, Texas on the extended opening track “Corvid Tactics.”
Notably, the guitarist duels with a phantom Chinese radio
signal that slips through the silences during the recording
session.
“One can hear the ghostly sounds peek through at moments
as Johnson bends his strings. “Medicine Map” delivers a
melodic melancholy, with an every-note-perfectly-placed
aesthetic. Rather than ramble or evoke some kind of
outdated nostalgia, Johnson lets his cinematic instincts
take lead.
“Perhaps most evocative of this approach is “Private
Violence,” a meditative composition with gorgeous pedal
steel played on top of electric six-string, ending in a
sustained tonal minimalism that could easily stretch into
a whole LP of its own. Blood Moon Boulder contains a
lyricism, an exactitude and emotional arc all its own. And
that’s worth playing again and again.”
—Steve Lowenthal, author of Dance of Death: The Life
of John Fahey, American Guitarist
