JAMES HEATHER - STORIES FROM FAR AWAY ON PIANO VINYL (180G LP)
180G VINYL LP
Release Date: 4th May 2018
The debut album from James Heather finally lands of vinyl having been digitally released in August last year, and if you missed it that time round then lucky you as you get a second shot at hearing this incredible record. Stories From Far Away On Piano (as the name might suggest) is a collection of nine conceptual solo piano pieces inspired by real world news events. Much like its concept, the tracks are bitter-sweet beautiful bounds of sound that sweep across you with gusts of emotion. If you want a great example of what can be achieved with just one solitary instrument - then look no further.
FFO: Nils Frahm, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Max Richter, Goldmund
"James Heather presents his debut album on vinyl for the first time via Ahead Of Our Time - Coldcut’s (Ninja Tune founders) first label and playground for free expression and experimentation. A collection of nine conceptual solo piano pieces inspired by real world news events. The album art by Suki features layers of Indian ink bled into newspaper print. It also plots the nine latitude and longitude locations of each stories origin. Recommended if you like Jóhann Jóhannsson, Poppy Ackroyd, Max Richter and Nils Frahm."
