ELLIOT

Modern Times is the third album from the British creative spirit Elliot Galvin. If his previous trio album, The Influencing Machine was a more involved and produced album, then Modern Times completely redresses the balance. This is an album so immediate and instantaneous, it takes the same time to listen to as it did to make. Primarily produced for vinyl, each side was recorded in one complete sitting, with no break in between tracks, recorded direct to vinyl.

As Elliot explains: ‘I had been making music with a lot of electronic instruments and becoming a bit disengaged with making acoustic music. Then I saw a solo piano concert by Jason Moran when I was in Montreux and I was so inspired. It reminded me why I loved making jazz and acoustic music. It was so immediate and human. I wanted to make a record like this. I remember a chat I had a while back with a friend of mine Jorg who mentioned he was putting together this studio where you could record direct to vinyl and it seemed like the perfect way to capture a totally acoustic record”.

Modern Times is yet another confirmation of a musician who is able to play with real adventurousness and inventiveness. He has created a unique identity as one of the foremost European pianists and improvisors. He challenges himself, never allowing himself to sit on his laurels, inspires the musicians who play with him and pushes the boundaries of what we’ve come to know as contemporary Jazz. It’s unpredictable, inventive, but above all, it’s brilliant. Elliot Galvin is growing a formidable reputation: with Modern Times taking flight, a wave of international acclaim and plaudits for The Influencing Machine (including being named by Downbeat and Jazzwise as one of the best albums of 2018) and growing international audiences. He also has a solo piano album planned and recorded, Live in Paris at Fondation Louis Vuitton, due in early 2020. His output is prolific yet remains of the highest quality. There’s no stopping his endlessly creative spirit and his carving out of a career of deep foundation and longevity.

Clangers - Original TV Music

    Out of print since 2001, a classic trunk records release gets a rare repress. Naïve and pastoral space music at its very best!

    As a TV obsessed child, the Clangers was my favourite programme on the box, so you can imagine how excited I was when this came in!

    What an unbelievable recording. The entire unreleased score for the entire Clangers TV series - that's music for all 26 episodes. It grows organically (as does the series) from small and simple phrases to complex passages of pure pastoral space music. It all climaxes with the awesome "Harmony Of The Spheres". The running order is exactly as it ran with all 26 episodes and includes some SFX, Tiny Clanger and Oliver Postgate's timeless introduction. This CD also comes with the unique and sweet "Clangers Opera" compiled by Oliver Postgate, an adventure on the Clangers planet starring the Iron Chicken. The CD booklet includes rare photos, early Clangers Sketches and a Libretto for the Clangers Opera written by Oliver Postgate.

    Song In The Air

      "Song in the Air" is a reflective, emotionally intense release for Elliot's 'difficult' third album. A collection of songs that adds a mature insight into their lives and the breadth and depth of the album is evidence of the band taking chances, getting messed up, really sad, worked up, pissed off but essentially... alive. Recorded in July 2001 "Song In The Air" deserves to be the one that gets Elliot to the wider audience this music merits. Awesome.

      I'm Diggin' It

        Young, pretty and with a penchant for country tinged rock and the catchy pop hook with a soulful tinge; Alecia Elliot may be a bit of all things to all men but it's an entertaining listen.

        U.S. Songs

          Back in stock, the debut album from one of the best emo-core outfits around. Their second release £False Cathedrals" is rapidly gaining them a huge following and this first set is another cracker.
