Text excerpt by American Dreams:

"...The winter holidays of 2018 found Cameron Knowler and Eli Winter touring through that part of the state. Each night they played solo and duo sets, interpreting traditional folk songs and showcasing their own, unifying seemingly disparate approaches to the guitar. Anticipation, the first album of gorgeous duets by the two young gun guitarists, is the product of this trip, documenting a musical juncture between desert and city, Chicago and the Southwest, folk traditions and America's musical avant-garde[...]

[...] The bulk of the record was composed and recorded in Houston, in a marathon nine-hour session completed on the eve of Winter's return to Chicago last year. Several recordings, including the bookends, are first takes. Album opener “ Strawberry Milk,” which emerged fully-formed, sets the tone: sweet, inquisitive, daring. It's not unlike “Parapraxis of a Dragonfly,” which moves from lush, constellate harmonies to enigmatic, spiralling progressions and harmonics suggesting Derek Bailey.

The circumstances of the session forced the two to play outside of their comfort zones, building a new vocabulary of playing. This is most clear on freely improvised piece “Sippin' Amaretto,” which crafts melodies from dissonance, pivoting between power chords and comical, stupefying licks, as if Charlie Christian were running on three hours of sleep. But it's true of the gentler "Cumberland Application," a playful, pointillist arrangement of folk song "Cumberland Gap." Western suggestions run throughout: on "And So I Did ,” Knowler renders Winter's bracing Weissenborn tune into a dusky cowboy noir. Later, he complements his sensitive rendition of Michael Chapman's “Caddo Lake,” after the lake bordering Texas and Louisiana, with dizzying contrapuntal runs. Their rendition of Tut Taylor's "Southern Filibuster ," sourced from the homecoming show of the Texas tour, is rousing and comforting, like a bear hug from an old friend."
