Kscope post-progressive sounds

Hello and welcome to the first Kscope Podcast of 2016.

 

PLENTY going on at the label this year!

 

We start with an introduction to Catherine Anne Davies PhD, Simple Minds’ keyboardist, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, PKA as The Anchoress for her debut album out now on Kscope,‘Confessions of a Romance Novelist’ – which is “sneaking big ideas past the listeners of daytime radio” (Q Magazine).

 

Some of the LP was co-produced and written with Mansun’s creative force Paul Draper (Catherine is currently helping Paul with his first solo album) so we’ll hear how the two met - as well as Catherine’s forthright opinions on gender in rock.

 

PLUS a track from the current album from Steven Wilson AND an update on the current Kscope artists on tour.

 

IT’S ALL HAPPENING!

Welcome to the Kscope Podcast vinyl special.

Vinyl sales are on the up according to the latest music industry report* - it seems an increasing number of music fans are craving a tangible product with original artwork and high quality audio; the format has experienced a major revival in the last few years with worldwide sales increasing from 3.1 million in 2006 to over 23 million last year - we’ve always been keen on premium vinyl records with big statement artwork over at Kscope, as you know, it suits our artists and fans.

 

As well as the beautiful vinyl LPs already released on Kscope and new ones to come, the label is currently going through many reissue projects remastering and rereleasing many fan favourite albums from artists’ catalogues which either hadn’t been released before on vinyl, or are new to Kscope…you’ll hear a few of them here.
