Never heard him before now, but fucking ell this is a bit great isn't it? Incredibly hypnotic drone
it's incredible yeah
playing at Cafe Oto next month CAN'T FUCKING WAIT
It's pretty great. Thanks for the tip.
Power Colour Spirit Animal!
...and it's living up to the high level of expectation I had for it.
Yesiamaduck - I'd really recommend giving 'A Turn Of Breath' a listen, I think its on Spotify, along with last years excellent 'Cradle for the Wanting'. 'A Turn Of Breath' was my in with him, so I can't help but have that record as my go to album of his.
Pretty much all his other releases are on his bandcamp as pay what you want: https://ianwilliamcraig.bandcamp.com This year's
'Zugzwang for Foster' is well worth your time!
He's written about each track from 'Centres' on the 405, well worth a read: http://www.thefourohfive.com/music/article/to-the-centre-of-centres-with-ian-william-craig-146
Yup, bloody love him, can't wait for Cafe Oto gig!
I look forward to giving this a listen
can't stop listening to this rn
i love he closes the album with a straight up singer-songwriter version of the opening track. it's like... he couldn't clearly express his thoughts initially, but having travelled through all the opressive noise of the past hour, it's all clearer... or something
the whole record is just one of the best mergers of vocal and ambient music i know of
Was listening to it on headphones at work and our director wandered past on his way out and asked what I was listening to. Passed him my headphones and he listened to the last 30 seconds of An Ocean Only You Could See.
Off come the headphones, and instead of the expected "What the fucking hell is this bollocks?" look, he gave a thoughtful nod and said:
"Who's this guy then?"
"I'll have to give this a listen on the way home. Sounds perfect for blocking out idiots on the train."
tour this week :O
gutted i can't get to any dates. he did a podcast for norman records that's very good:
Beautiful set, and a great contrast following Pigs x7. Not on the same stage, obviously... I got on stage and shook his hand at the end, lucky man.
nice. how was supernormal as a whole. i really want to make it along one year and this had a particularly strong line-up IMO.
This was my 6th and it was pretty much perfect except for the unfathomable presence of a band called Wytch Hazel who, my metal history imbibed friend assures me, were a cross between early Iron Maiden and Wishbone Ash. Unfortunately Jimmy Martin's Spacemen 3 tribute band were a shambles. Giant Swan, The Early Years, JK Flesh and The Cosmic Dead were other musical highlights. Moonseer was bizarre, tibetan curry was great. (Not a band, food.)
Heard one track on t'radio, scrambled to Shazam it and have been listening to the album since. So good.
That was properly great wasn't it
of everyone who went to this. Here's hoping he does more UK gigs!
Loved his enthusiastic nodding after every song.
Really great gig, and a lovely guy.
Hope it's not too long until he's over again, and maybe pops down to Brighton this time!
was incredibly good last night, and (i think) not just because he went on at midnight after i had drunk 8 pints of tennents
