From Scotland with love
KING CREOSOTE “Astronaut Meets Appleman” DOMINO Out Now – Hot on the heels of “Bound Of the Red Deer”, Scotland’s King Creosote has released his latest masterpiece. On Astronaut Meets Appleman, King Creosote is upsetting apple carts and dealing with the fallout. He’s howling at planets and comets. He’s at sea and in the dark. He’s appraising love and life, the moon, and the stars. His lyrics are tide tables, bagpipe scores, zeros and ones, waves lapping on the beach, mathematics, ticking clocks and the beat of our hearts.
KING CREOSOTE & MICHAEL JOHNSTON “The Bound of the Red Deer” fence
Out Now – Mercury-Prize Nominee King Creosote and Skydiggers’ Michael Johnston have forged a unique musical partnership over the past decade. “The Bound Of The Red Deer” is their ten-song collaborative debut. Recorded in Toronto by Chris Stringer (Timber Timbre), “The Bound Of The Red Deer” is a collection of heartfelt songs anchored by acoustic guitar, piano, ambient textures and an endearing vocal blend of Scottish & Canadian accents. Included on the album are the earliest songs they wrote together, alongside collaborations with Karine Polwart and Emma Pollock (of the Delgados), and musical contributions from Texas musician Gurf Morlix (Lucinda Williams).
