King Creosote dévoile un court-métrage de live 'Live at EartH Hackney'

Fin 2023, King Creosote sortait l'excellent I DES, son premier album en sept ans. Le terrain musical kaléidoscopique de l'album est parsemé de vibraphones, d'accordéons, d'archets électroniques, d'échantillonneurs, d'ongulés, de tuyaux et de disques rayés. Mais il y a un point commun à tout cela : la voix singulière de Kenny Anderson et ses chansons somptueuses, espiègles, en constante évolution, dans la tonalité de Fife.  

Après des concerts à guichets fermés à Londres et à Édimbourg, dont deux au Queens Hall, King Creosote a le plaisir d'annoncer sa tournée "Any Port in a Storm" dans les villes côtières et les îles d'Écosse et du nord de l'Angleterre, ainsi que des concerts au Norwich Folk Festival et au Norfolk Folk Festival, et à Liverpool. Le groupe jouera également aux Celtic Connections à Glasgow à la fin du mois.  

Parallèlement à cette annonce, King Creosote a le plaisir de partager le charmant court-métrage Live From EartH Hackney réalisé par Greg Barnes (Black Country, New Road : Live at Bush Hall). Le film de quatre titres présente des performances live de son spectacle en quatuor au EartH Theatre de Londres, ainsi que des performances solo exceptionnelles filmées dans sa ville natale de Crail.

King Creosote I DES

Album | 3rd November 2023

They say long live the king and all, but nothing’s ever set in stone. A quarter of a century since his self-inflicted coronation, and self-released debut solo album,  Kenny Anderson - DIY pop voyager, ancestral seaside home restorer, squeezebox lothario, Fife for lifer, diamond miner, hijacker of hearts, and the man also known as King Creosote - has released over 100 records (at a relatively conservative guess),  collaborated with the likes of Jon Hopkins, KT Tunstall, Beta Band’s Lone Pigeon, and had his songs covered and performed by artists including Patti Smith and Simple Minds.

Yet he’s still standing: fallible, doubtful, patched together, bloody-minded and unbowed. He’s got a new LP, despite or perhaps because of it all. It’s called I DES.
