JAMES HEATHER

Sto­ries From Far Away On Pi­ano 7/10

UNCUT - - New Albums I’m New Here - Fra­grant de­but from pub­li­cist turned pi­anist PIERS MARTIN

James Heather is best known to hacks as the ge­nial head of press at Ninja Tune. Taught to com­pose as a child by his grand­par­ents, for this first col­lec­tion Heather draws on news sto­ries for in­spi­ra­tion, yet re­gard­less of the na­ture of the event – “MHope” muses on the miss­ing Malaysian Air­lines plane, “Teardrop Tat­too” stems from a se­ri­ous case of mis­taken iden­tity – each bit­ter­sweet piece is ren­dered with taste­ful sim­plic­ity, as if he’s scor­ing a sad French film.
