The music of Danish project Western Skies Motel seems equally inspired by the American guitar primitivism of artists such as John Fahey and ambient soundscapes. The combination of open guitar tunings and eerie tape loops creates images of desolate American landscapes as it can be heard on the brilliant album “Settles” (2016), which received international acclaim with sites such as Drowned in Sound, mentioning it as one of the best ambient albums of its year.
