Rōnin Blues marks Caspar Sonnet’s 5th solo release since 2010. It also signifies his most extreme record to date, containing musical hallucinations, choral incantations and dizzying, extended techniques. The album’s sparse instrumentation drives the focus of this record, not to mention it’s unusual interpretations of pre-war blues forms. Considered by the artist to be a very personal breakthrough record, it proves to be an introductory masterpiece of what is yet to come. A haunting collection of musical stories, effectively creeping their way through an entangled unknown dark.
