Product description

281 of 1000 limited numbered deluxe boxsets which will include the cd and 10" vinyl versions plus a cd of james yorkston songs covered by archie bronson outfit, king creosote, u.n.p.o.c and others, and a cd of james yorkston remixes including the rare four tet remix of 'the lang toun', an exclusive james yorkston pin badge and exclusive james yorkston canvas bag. one of the limited box sets will have a golden ticket which will grant one fan their very own james yorkston composition written just for them, which james will perform live at their home. this fourth studio album by james yorkston is for sure a masterful thing. all the ambition, beauty and pathos of his previous albums is sweeping through - and he's even bought back the full, lush arrangements that popularised his early work. self produced; this album has the sound of a man let loose - un-restrained by the hand of an outside producer or the expectation of a major label's desperation for a hit album. alongside king creosote, the aliens, beta band & kate tunstall, arriving here we have another slab of fence collective - east neuk of fife braw-ness. james is working once again with his trusty athletes, along with some more unexpected names - norma waterson, mike waterson, marry gilhooly, olly knight. not sure who they are? have a wee look-up, filed under 'legendary english folk family'. this clash of the folk world and the fence world works particularly well - james first met them all at the bbc electric proms, where he was musical director at the tribute to the great lal waterson - the amazing version of 'midnight feast' here has all the fluidity of can at their most out there, with the mightiest of fisherman's choruses pitched in. kraut-folk indeed. more tales of waking up drunk in unfamiliar surroundings, throwing rocks at magpies, dogs chasing ghosts, stubborn sea winds, regrets and joys and smiles and peace and quiet and love and hate and more love. better than that sounds though. it's a beautiful, honest album. temptation even sounds like a scottish jacques brel. that's allowed though - hey, it's 2008. there are all sorts going on here - those arrangements - the timpani, clarinets, violins, vibraphone, concertinas, bull bass, prepared pianos, mandolins, bouzoukis, banjos and wine glasses. all wrapping up the songs and surrounding them with warmth and grandeur.Close
