I never know where I am going to discover a fresh modern guitar talent. Oddly, The New York Times has become a source. The online version publishes a weekly Playlist, which spotlights recent releases, with clickable examples. Most of it leans towards execrable pop sameness, but these lists have led me to Rafiq Batia, and now Martin Miguel Tonne.
There is a cool new gear-focused video series called Echoes. Dwarfcraft has paired up with PureSalem Guitars to show off some great gear in strange locations.
Episode 1: Space, is beautifully shot, featuring Jaime Hansen (The Ronald Raygun) and Matt Haapala (The Ronald Raygun, The Heart Pills, Pit Wagon) and Mike Noyce (Bon Iver) improvising in a racquetball court.
