Captain of None CDs, video in the making, studio photos and concerts…
March 10, 2015 § Leave a comment
Last month when I announced the limited white vinyl edition of Captain of None, I was so excited about it that I said that the album was also available on “regular old CD”, which 1) shows that I prefer vinyl (for reasons of sound but also longevity – hands up if a lot of your old CDs skip or won’t play..) 2) isn’t fair at all because the CD version is a beautiful mini gatefold containing another illustration on the inside of the gatefold, as well as a full colour booklet (the vinyl has a different insert, black and white), and here’s what it looks like, with artwork and design by Iker Spozio as always… Both vinyl and cd are on preorder here.
In other news, the amazingly talented stop-motion video artist Christophe Thockler has started work on a video for my song “I’m Kin”, and I really cannot wait to see the results! Christophe is taking pictures as he’s shooting and I’ve been sharing them via Facebook, but here they are for you non-Facebook users ;-) If you are not familiar with Christophe’s work, I strongly urge you to go watch his incredible “Cusp” video for Mimi Goese and Ben Neill.
Speaking of making of, I’ve added a STUDIO PHOTOS section on this website where I will be putting the photos of my studio that I regularly post on Facebook, so it’ll make one nice space in which you can have a little glimpse of where and how I work.
On the live front, one live show in the US has been added, on June 25th in Portsmouth, NH, at 3S Artspace, with Nat Baldwin of the Dirty Projectors opening, and there should be another US East Coast show to announce soon, as well as concerts in Turkey.
This week on Friday 13th March I’m kicking off the tour with a slightly early date in Munich at the Frameworks festival – good job I’m not superstitious, because it’s the first time I will be playing the album live in its (almost) entirety! ;-)
