about

It's amazing what you find when doing a bit of Spring cleaning of your computer.
Fourteen tracks that have not seen the light of day for a while. Some are alternative versions of well known Mint Biscuit tunes. Others are new - well, several years old really, but fresh to my ears, having been in hiding for so long.

Polished up with Audacity from the original Line6 Backtrack recordings.


Review of Clouded By Obscurity
by Hans Werksman, herecomestheflood.com

Welsh guitarist Richard Thomas wraps up 2022 with two more homegrown albums: Clouded By Obscurity and Vested Interests. He can't help himself: the ideas keep coming and he wants to share most of them with the outside world. So: one album with mostly new tunes and the other one a compilation of old ones, revisited ones, and yes, more new ones.

Clouded By Obscurity

Thomas goes back to serving up melodic instrumentals for this one. The keywords are intimacy and keeping it straightforward. Kicking off with the unidentical twin tracks Alien and Long Distance Alien he sets the tone for a journey that finds him wandering around the house and its immediate surroundings. With Pine Time he takes the listener out for a walk among the trees.

The stand-out track is Moody Blues, an excursion that sounds a bit more hopeful than the title suggests.
