Thanks for that link! Getting bookmarked here :-)

Yes, it's funny how odd comparisons ppl can come up with! As for myself
I sometimes get the strangest first impressions of some new music and
later on I just can't understand how I could hear it "as such".
> Like you, I also use a cello bow on guitar sometimes;
Yes. That's an easy way to get a warmer sound ;-) I like using
"physical" effects as much as possible and loop the real sound, as an
alternative to using electronic effects. Have you tried any other sized
bow for guitar? I went for the cello bow right away and never actually
tried a different model.
For that "rich and warm low sound" I also like to use a tenor sax. Sax
is, like playing guitar with a bow, a monophonic instrument and as such
it makes a lot of fun to loop, building layers for chords and trying to
chop them up for beats or to get some kind of LFO filter to move them.
A lot of looping guitarists seem to like using the e-bow. I think that
too makes you monophonic, right?
> do you also get the inevitable Sigur Rós comparisons?
Noop, not yet. But I like them a lot (cool vocals). I try to also bring
the sax as much as possible and maybe some think "it's jazz" when they
see that instrument, getting instantly flpped out of that Sigur Rós
