About this item
THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2015 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.
Independent record store (and Soho institution) If Music presents a magnificent alt-folk album by the little known duo Annabel (lee) for Record Store Day 2015.
‘By The Sea… And Other Solitary Places’ invokes the haunting classicism of Claude Debussy and Erik Satie, intermingled with the quiet folklore of Nick Drake and Joni Mitchell, tipped with the jazz stylings of Miles Davis and Billie Holiday. The duo’s moniker is the title of a poem by Edgar Allen Poe.
“I had the pleasure of first seeing Annabel and Richard (on guitar) perform back in 2007, when we all did a gig at the Three Blind Mice’ in East London. From her first phrase to the last, I was completely enraptured by the compositions and Annabel’s angelic voice that, though new, seemed so hauntingly familiar” - Jean-Claude, If Music.
Recommended if you like Beck, The Cinematic Orchestra, Joni Mitchell, Linda Perhacs, Vashti Bunyan.
Both the CD and vinyl LP formats are limited to 500 copies.
