with a warmer feel than his last proper solo album (‘A Wonder Working Stone’), the rich ambiance throughout the album is evidence of yet another tremendous leap in the Scottish songwriter, guitarist & singer's writing, playing & singing.

  alasdair's 8th Drag City album is a very different work to ‘A Wonder Working Stone’ (an expansive double album, featuring some 13 musician friends working through complex arrangements of 10 sprawling epics), as these 10 songs are sparse, intimate & concise. The focus throughout is on Alasdair’s deft acoustic fingerstyle guitar & his voice. The songs are variously elliptical & gnomic, direct & personal, romantic a& tender. There are occasional guest appearances from fellow Glasgow-dwellers Alex South (clarinet), Donald Lindsay (tin whistle) & singing quartet The Crying Lion (Alex Neilson, Lavinia Blackwall, Harry Campbell, Katy Cooper), always to great dramatic effect. for fans of king creosote, james yorkston or bonnie 'prince' billy.
