HERBERT, CHRIS & FELIX - As Blue As Your Eyes Lover / What I Learned From TV (7")


Offering a sneak preview of his 2nd full-length album currently in production for Kranky, 'As Blue As Your Eyes Lover' marks a continuation of Chris Herbert's inimitable approach to ambient composition. Using a variety of collaged found sounds augmented by smears of processed electric guitar and muted percussion, this hypnotic 6-minute track is typical of Chris' refusal to simply plough the well-trodden path. Felix is the creative pseudonym of Nottingham chanteuse Lucinda Chua. After several self-released cdrs of lo-fi bedroom recordings, this side of the split single marks the first time Lucy's compositions have been augmented by additional personnel, in this instance the guitar work of Chris Summerlin. Combining cello, piano and Lucy's hushed vocals, this specially recorded version of 'What I Learned From TV' presents a perfect introduction to the sparse and hauntingly beautiful song craft of Miss Chua. (label info) Heavyweight 70g 7" vinyl, packaged in a clear pvc sleeve with full colour insert featuring photography by Lucinda Chua. Edition of 250 copies. - special price
