Khonnor - Handwriting (2004)

Khonnor is one of the aliases for Connor Kirby-Long, an american musician from Vermont, who works under many other names such as Grandma, I Cactus or Gaza Faggot.
"Handwriting" was his debut album.
An amazing and beautiful record, combining ambient and dream pop elements, remniscents of some of the best soundscapes produced by such well known names as Fennesz, Ulrich Schnauss, Slowdive or My Bloody Valentine.

Dreamlike digitally manipulated guitar noise and wavering synths form the foundation for most of the tracks, complimented by Khonnor’s frank and open lyrics throughout, breathing life into his tracks with an ease and unforgettable beauty as he charts the ups and downs of teenage love, pocket change and lost hazy nights.
