BAKER, AIDAN - Half Lives

Format: do-CD
Label & Cat.Number: Gizeh Records GZH61CD
Release Year: 2015
Note: two seperate albums that shows AIDAN BAKER as singer and songwriter, loosely based on improvisations but from then formed into constructed pieces => wonderful airy and most ethereal Jazz influenced songs, super slow and melancholic smooth post-rock, often sounding hazy and dreamy, almost wavering, with AIDAN's soft voice above = a wonderful album !
Price (incl. 19% VAT): €16.50

More Info

"Half Lives is the Gizeh Records follow-up album to Bakers acclaimed 2013 album Already Drowning. While that album was built around the guest vocals of female singers - including Carla Bozulich, Jessica Bailiff and Genevive Castre (O Paon) - Half Lives comprises two separate but interconnected albums and Bakers loose concept was that they would bridge the more abstract/experimental and song-oriented natures of his work. Both albums were recorded in August 2014 in Berlin and are the product of initial extended improvisations that were then arranged into coherent pieces - constructed rather than composed. In these senses, parallels can be made with artists such as Bark Psychosis, Low and The For Carnation, for whom experimentation with texture and timbre has never been a reason to abandon the song form.
