“blue figures” recommanded

Aidan Baker’s “blue figures” CD got a recommandation on Norman Records !

Aidan Baker’s vast discography continues to grow with the addition of ‘Blue Figures’ which is a disc of exceptionally high quality live recordings (both in terms of sound and content). Figures Part 1 & 2 were recorded in last year Berlin during his tour where he also played in Nadja. It’s really quite beautiful stuff that’s on a super dreamy tip, its actually not as dark overall as I was expecting, sure there is a lingering darkness but it’s not overtly bleak. I could totally veg out on a big squishy sofa and happily melt into it with this as the soundtrack. Phil is actually reminded of Yellow 6. Heheheh… Baker is thee evil Robin Guthrie! I could waffle about this moody ambient guitar drone forever but I’ll spare you… Rest assured if you’re an Aidan Baker fan then this will do the business. If you’re not a fan then check this guy out as he’s super talented.
