about

This album was recorded, mixed and mastered in my flat in Glasgow, Scotland, with some drums recorded externally, to keep the cats and neighbours onside. It was conceived in April 2016 when moving from Edinburgh to Glasgow and in-between flats. I only had access to an acoustic guitar and began writing simple, repetitive melodies that sounded good on their own.
Around the same time, I began drumming again after a long break, and bought an old 1960's kit in a gold sparkle finish. This proved quite inspiring as i had also begun listening to a lot of 60s and 70s jazz and African music. As a result, I tuned the drums up high, got the old trashy cymbals out and recorded them very simply with 1 mic overhead.
I eventually settled in Glasgow in June 2016 and proper recording began; I envisioned these tracks being very simple and embryonic, with the sounds of myself playing the instruments audible, and some parts not well known by me, or even improvised, when recording them. Obviously, in their production, the songs have evolved from this elemental plan, but I think this original vision can still be heard in there.
