"These are lushly dramatic homages to bruised hearts borne along by big sounds and insidious melodies. Neither Florence nor any of her machines can make a sound as alluring. Ace." - Adam Walton, BBC Wales
ANNA ROSE CARTER
Hailing from the idyllic wilds of the south coast of Wales, Anna Rose, born November 1988, grew up being inspired by her surroundings. She started playing piano aged seven and was influenced by many modern day classical composers as well as the natural beauty around her. Her piano solo work was soon discovered by the label Schedios Records. Her debut ep “Silver Lines”, comprising of five pieces, is a raw, emotional reflection of her upbringing in Wales. She is currently based in London where she is studying, collaborating and developing her own music. Her second ep was released in early 2010 on Chicago based label Dedicated Records. “Something for a Rainy Day” offers a new multi instrument approach to her music and also includes collaborations on two of the songs.
ROME PAYS OFF
Rome Pays Off' are an active diversion for Mark Beazley & Crawford Blair, two founding members of Rothko, the original bass-troika minimaldronewhathaveyou. They have completed a record entitled 'There's No Simple Explanation' which will be released some time in late Sept or possibly early October. The record's sound is that of two stereo bass guitars, drone, piano and some very faint reaKtor arpeggio. Many of the tracks are simple duets that took just a little longer to record than they did to write. This does not mean however, that the record is improvised. For live performances they are joined by Chris Gowers who plays tabletop treated guitar, as he also likes to do in the bands Karina ESP and Signals. The record will be released as a short run on Trace Recordings, and in accordance with the long-tail theory there will be boutique material generated for those who purchase possibly a beautiful, very long-form drone piece featuring all three members.
