Tour time! Heading back out across Europe next month, visiting lots of new places. Hope to see some of you there!
I shall also be performing a live soundtrack to the 1927 film 'The Fall of the Romanov Dynasty' as part of the Bristol Radical Film Festival. The film follows the story of the Russian Revolution of 1917.

💿"Hex" by Bark Psychosis 💿
The album that spawned the term "post rock." While bands like Talk Talk were making similar sounding music a few years prior, it was this album that caught critics attention for its distinctive sound. Guitars used to create gentle atmospheric sounds rather than power chords and insane riffs. It is the reason we have bands like Mogwai and Explosions In The Sky today.
Bjork - Debut (1993)/// probably not even my favourite bjork record, but definitely one I've listened to the most. Easy to listen to whilst also incredibly emotionally affecting. Bjork was a great influence for me in how a song is put together. It doesn't have to be something you play on the guitar from start to finish. It can float around. What a lovely cover as well, so cute. #bjork#debut#electronicmusic#electronic#triphop#ambient#vinyl#vinylcollection#cutegirls
Aphex Twin - Selected Ambient Works 85-92 (1992)/// first electronic album I ever listened to, and of course it completely changed my life and the music I would listen to from then on. A lot of people will call a talented musician a "genius" but I think for it to apply one has to completely reinvent the way music is made and composed. Richard D James did exactly that. Gorgeous album all the way through, full of melody and rhythm. So nice to listen back to it now and remember being 16 and totally in awe of it. I still am. #aphextwin#selectedambientworks#richarddjames#electronic#idm#ambient#dance#electronicmusic#vinylcollection#vinyl
PJ Harvey - White Chalk (2007)/// a complete reinvention for polly, and kind of in a genre of its own too. Let's call it apparitioncore, since every second of it sounds like it just floated through the wall. I'm still obsessed with this album 10 years on, for me it's one of the darkest but most beautiful things she's done. A late career masterpiece. #pjharvey#whitechalk#piano#ambient#indierock#ghost#vinyl#vinylcollection
