about

Littlefield​ was recorded onto 4-track cassette one evening after hours at Weathers' day job. It was hot and the office had no windows. Though open-tuned fingerpicking has been an important aspect of Weathers' output for many years, ​Littlefield​ is his first proper Solo Guitar release. Along with accompaniment from guitarist Blaine Todd, Weathers has crafted a collection of jagged blues and spacious extended works.

Littlefield finds Weathers atypically bare; electronic processing traded for tape hiss. With no reverb to hide behind, Weathers' odd-metered playing style comes to the fore, revealing rhythmic elements not usually found in his work.

This release marks the arrival of Editions Littlefield, a sub-label of Full Spectrum exploring ideas of intentional communities and progressive living. One might notice that the song titles on Littlefield ​come from a variety of intentional communities and collectives.
