a new spin

a new spin

martin and i have our fifth album ready soon

man its been a long time we been partners in this

martin provides all the music

i provide the singing and the words

there was our first lovely album quite minimal in places

the second album melodic and poppy

the third album suddenly we hit a real peak

the fourth album growing and changing

now we have album number 5

glow and fade

and lo we are now some weird prog rock duo

with lots and lots of floydian references

the slide echo guitar

the percolating synthesisers

the sheer length of track two and its transformations

the songs are about wide eyed naivete and crushing cynicism

the void the crowd

nature of time

time of nature

the struggle and the defeat

love in all its old disguises

the illusion the disenchantment

the mistakes

it really is quite a journey and the moods are departures from before

i think this a special record and those who may dig it will certainly dig it

yeah

amen

    As with all of your releases looking forward to some Glow & Fade. The previous albums are all special in their own way, Friends Are Gone beautiful and elegant. The Broken Sea majestic and mysterious, I Wouldn’t Know such a strong opener on a strong lush album. Oh My Glad with it sunburst guitar parts, commissioned songs with some real gems like Watching Over My Tomorrows, love your singing on that track especially.

    So amen to KK and looking forward to the next 5 albums, now if we could just tour the States we would love to see you both.

    Take care,

    Jason

    This is a deceptively simple superb poetic vignette about the creative process and journey of a musician. Gold

    I am so happy that you still have great music to offer us !
    I already dig this new one.
    But it is not the fifth album, it is the eighth one.
    The three volumes of “Songs From The Real World” are part of it (IMO).
