Rag Lore
"Misr Environs: Cairo Road Recordings and Other Half Truths"
Cabin Floor Esoterica
Cassette, c40
Edition of 50
Released September 1st, 2014

"Rag Lore is Matthew Russell Boteilho (Poor Farm Editions Press, etc.). This collection of field recordings and 12 string guitar works was recorded and collected during his time in Cairo from Summer to Winter 2013. A seamless stream of street radio, disembodied voices and absolutely shimmering strings. Matthew’s guitar work at one sounds perfectly at home in the Egyptian desert and at others like he’s still in Virginia. A beautiful blend. Life in varying fidelities. Editions of 50 in chipboard boxes with pasted on art, two inserts featuring photographs by the artist, and two pieces of papyrus." - Cabin Floor Esoterica
