new (instrumental) musical project (EP “Beyond Harlem Nocturne”) from Terry Edwards & Neil Fraser

EP “Beyond Harlem Nocturne” RELEASED ON 3RD OF JULY 2015

 

PREORDER: https://sartorialrecords.greedbag.com/buy/beyond-harlem-nocturne/

DESCRIPTION

TERRY EDWARDS, NEIL FRASER – BEYOND HARLEM NOCTURNE

Beyond Harlem Nocturne showcases a set of music from Terry Edwards (PJ Harvey,
Gallon Drunk, Madness, The Vaccines etc) and Neil Fraser (Tindersticks, London
Dirthole Company, Asphalt Ribbons), recorded for release ahead of their residency
at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival from 7th to 30th of August 2015

Harlem Nocturne – the Earle Hagen standard recorded by Edwards a couple of times in the past, this tips its’ hat to the swampy version by New Jersey’s Viscounts, with tremolo guitar backing the lead – played on a bright, brash plastic alto saxophone!

Lullaby for Ian – a contemplative duet for guitar and flute, written by Edwards on
hearing of his teenage hero Ian Dury’s terminal cancer. The flute lines are reminiscent of the Kes soundtrack (played by Harold McNair) and the title refers to Lullaby for Franci/es on the Blockheads’ album Do It Yourself

Factory Girls – a Tindersticks song taken from the comfort-zone of Falling Down A
Mountain and redefined with a vulnerable Chet Baker-style vocal, culminating in wild, angry shards of guitars and sax in the coda

Curve Ball – Edwards & Fraser’s first writing collaboration which is rooted in a swinging, repetitive chord sequence, embroidered with Neil’s inventive lead-lines and layered drones, accompanied by rich baritone saxophone roots

Terry Edwards: “A new project to be premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August. More details soon… ”

UPDATE#1:

 
“Terry Edwards (PJ Harvey, Higsons, Madness etc) and Tindersticks’ guitarist Neil Fraser combine to create a brand new bag of spine-tingling music, alongside choice cuts from their back-catalogue. Edwards leads on trumpet, flute, guitar and saxophones (occasionally two at once) while Fraser’s deftly played guitars envelop the melodies with acerbic precision. An intimate space to experience this duo’s ferocious left-field angst and virtuosity tempered with the fragility and beauty of their ballads.”

Great Article from The Quietus about the new album, old official videos & albums in retrospect

The latest Quietus article features a great interview with Stuart & David – esp. the comments on their old official videos & albums in retrospect are worth exploring.

“… DB: The first album was a really fresh, wonderful time. We’d spent then years growing up, being in bands, trying to be successful. When we gave up trying, everything seemed to happen. And I remember us wanting to introduce the band to public through the ‘City Sickness’ video – not making a traditional video trying to impress people at MTV, but having little story, and a natural feel to it.

SS: The song is still very special to me. I wrote it in St Ives – I’d taken a train there to escape London, to try and sort my head out – and I’ve been back there since, gone back to that spot, and could remember that exact moment. It was something felt at that time, and needed to say. And that relationship with Martin [Wallace, their video director] is still so strong. That visual sense has always been so important to us. And this video, with David ending up being right at centre of it….I was a bystander, with Syd in that video as a baby [Stuart’s eldest daughter, now 20]. There were some hairy moments with David pushing her through Soho late at night, getting severe looks from people! But whenever I think of this song now…we’d just made first album, we were on a real high. Full of pure joy.”

Statement on the “soundquality” on TSR album

freshly in (found on the official fb newsstream) tinderbit:

“The band has received a technical question from a fan (Jörg Lippmann) regarding the sound quality on the new record (compression and clippings). Here’s a reply from the legendary John Dent at Loud Mastering who masters all of Stuart’s music and has a reputation which is hard won, well deserved and beyond reproach.

“Stuart went for a particular sound that was reminiscent of 70s vinyl, warts n all, (Roxy music -ish) it’s a bit compressed, not massively, but then most cds have some compression, and there are definitely a few dirty sounding sections, that are more noticeable on headphones, if you want to be fussy then the writer has a point but this is art, and the sound is there for Stuart’s desired emotional effect and it is very effective and it was difficult to get just right, so….”

As John has mentioned, the sound of the record is as Stuart wanted it to be for all sorts of specific reasons.”
