Boomkat Product Review:
Immersive live room recording of Slowdive's Simon Scott, melding acoustic guitar with subtly processed field recordings in Leuven, Belgium on 13th November, 2015 shortly after learning about the Paris attacks. Mournfully heavy but with that sense of melodic resolution that keeps us from sinking under the sadness of it all.
“STUK is dedicated to the victims of 13.11.15. As the devastating and abhorrent news of the Paris attacks was breaking I took to the stage to perform with a sinking and heavy heart.” – Simon Scott, 21.01.16.
Recorded live at STUK Kunstencentrum, Leuven, Belgium on 13th November 2015. Room recording made on an Edirol R-09HR. Written and performed live by Simon Scott.
