On his solo debut First & Last, Glasgow guitarist RM Hubbert — formerly of the band El Hombre Trajeado, who played with artists like Sebadoh, Deerhoof and The Delgados — crafts gorgeous instrumentals all done on acoustic guitar. He's been heavily influenced by flamenco and samba, though those come across more in chord structures than in rhythms and tempos — his songs are soothing and emotive, similar to guitarist Kaki King's earlier work.
