"Mike Lindsay – Mercury Prize-winning producer, co-founder of UK acid folktronica band Tunng, and one half of electronic alt-psych duo Lump with Laura Marling – with his debut solo album supershapes volume 1, out on Moshi Moshi Records. The first instalment in a series of records that explore “the miraculous in the mundane”, volume 1 looks widely at “everyday domestic objects, especially tables, coffee table books, and the daily rituals that shape us, heavily focusing on the majestic in the domestic”. At first, Lindsay had thought this first solo project of his would be purely instrumental. Then he brought in multi-instrumentalist Ross Blake, bringing breathy woodwind and soft saxophones which weaved through the analogue polyrhythmic shapes. “I had also just worked with Robert Stillman on the Nick Drake cover of Saturday Sun I did with Guy Garvey,” he recalls. “Robert is an incredible saxophone player and musician. He has this beautiful thick and warm wild tone. I asked him to come in for a couple of days to bring his magic to the shapes.” “As time went on though, I felt the songs were still missing a voice. The more they developed as instrumentals, the more I could imagine the tones of Anna B Savage. I had already worked with Anna on her album in|FLUX which was a wonderful experience. She is a true poet of the everyday emotions. Over four or five days together in my new studio in Margate, the supershapes started to come alive!” Others came on board too, including drummer Adam Betts, who Lindsay had seen play as part of Three Trapped Tigers, Squarepusher’s Shobaleader One, and his own Colossal Squid solo drum show in Margate. “I thought perhaps he could bring something to the shapes, which of course he did, weaving in and out of the sampled objects.”"
