    Rag Lore is Matthew Russell Boteilho (Poor Farm Editions Press, etc.). This collection of field recordings and 12 string guitar works was recorded and collected during his time in Cairo during the Summer/Winter of 2013. A seamless stream of street radio, disembodied voices and absolutely shimmering strings. Matthew’s guitar work at one moment sounds perfectly at home in the Egyptian desert and at others like he’s still in Virginia. A beautiful blend. Life in varying fidelities. Edition of 50 in chipboard boxes with pasted on art, two inserts (both featuring a photograph by the artist) and two pieces of papyrus.
