In 2009, guitarist and songwriter Kelly Joe Phelps pushed his own envelope with Western Bell, an all-instrumental, decidedly experimental record that has carved an iconoclastic niche in his catalog. Many thought it to be among his finest albums, and others felt it was too far outside the pale of his previous work to embrace. Their loss. Phelps then collaborated with songwriter Corinne West on the uneven Magnetic Skyline in 2010.
