We’re really excited to announce that our newest signing SLOWLY ROLLING CAMERA will launch this Autumn with the release of 2 digital singles as well as a full album release on 12in 180gr vinyl through our friends at Gearbox Records. Their CD will be released in Feb 2014. Their first single ‘Undertones‘ will be released on 9th Sept. Also, make sure you catch their shows at Chapter, Cardiff on 20th June and 13th Sept at Kings Place, London as part of the Edition / KP Fest.
SLOWLY ROLLING CAMERA include pianist-composer Dave Stapleton, Vocalist Dionne Bennett, drummer Elliot Bennett and producer / sound artist Deri Roberts. Rapidly building up a reputation in alternative, electronica and jazz scenes for their robust grooves, deep emotional contrasts and compelling melodic and rhythmical hooks SLOWLY ROLLING CAMERA (SRC), their album also features some of the most exciting and inspiring jazz musicians on the European scene including bassist Jasper Hoiby, guitarist Chris Montage, saxophonist Mark Lockheart and trumpeter Neil Yates. Drawing upon on a diverse range of influences the result is music that has distinct echoes of the ‘invisible soundtracks’ of UK progressives Cinematic Orchestra, Portishead as well as the polychrome textures of maverick Scandinavian artists Sigur Ros.
CHECK OUT A DEMO TRACK RELEASED IN FEBRUARY:
Slowly Rolling Camera are purveyors of mysterious audio vignettes, moulded by a structural sophistication plugged straight into the vibrant emotional current of pop culture.
We’re re really happy to announce the release of the new album by Alexi Tuomarila Trio called Seven Hills with Alexi Tuomarila (piano), Mats Eilertsen (bass), Olavi Louhivuori (drums) and guest Andre Fernandes (guitar) on 2 tracks.
‘Seven Hills’ highlights his melodically and rhythmically robust compositions and the trio’s almost telepathic communication. Featuring Norwegian bassist Mats Eilertsen and Finnish drummer Olavi Louhivuori, two of Scandinavia’s most compelling musicians, this music is filled with emotional and melancholy warmth balanced with a rhythmical drive that will compel the listener to engage. Highly recommended.
