Kscope post-progressive sounds

Welcome to the Kscope Podcast, episode 98, in which we share an interview with Gazpacho's Thomas Anderson backstage as the band prepared for their performance at London's The Dome in support of new album Soyuz.

Thomas explains what the tour means to the band, the meanings and concepts behind Soyuz, and gives a clue as to how the band’s unique sound is created. Plus, he and podcast presenter Billy Reeves swoon over the gorgeous singing of Mr Jan-Henrik Ohme, just out of his earshot..

As Kscope gears up to ten years as an official label and 100 Podcasts, we give a clue as to how you can join in the celebrations, and play a spin of an historic release…

Also included: brand new music from the new album from Mariusz Duda’s Lunatic Soul.

Kscope Podcast Ninety-Two – Anathema's Daniel Cavanagh Solo Album

Monochrome is the beautiful solo album from Daniel Cavanagh, a songwriter and frontman in the multi award-winning avant-garde band Anathema. We hear from Daniel during Anathema’s world tour, talking about the advantages and disadvantages of making an LP outside the warm comforts of the traditional group dynamic.

Plus breathtaking music from Nordic Giants – who have made a film about the simple things we can all do to save humanity and (in the spirit of the project) provided themselves with their own soundtrack PLUS a return (of sorts) of chart-topping Liverpudlians Mansun.

Paul Draper, once of top-of-the-chart guitar-monsters Mansun (now producer and co-writer of The Anchoress album), has released his second single, entitled EP TWO. Hear Paul in his kitchen on his return to making records, how both his album and the Anchoress’ second are coming along, and how to get Eb to C working in a 5-bar sequence!

We also catch up with Sam Healy from North Atlantic Oscillation and Sand; NAO have released a newly curated album of their best tracks, so Sam, being a self-contained sound-designer, interviewed himself.

Plus, Bruce Soord from The Pineapple Thief took his acoustic guitar on the road across the USA opening for Steven Wilson recently. We celebrate this tour with a TPT acoustic track and a small announcement.

And, talking of Steven, this podcast is your first chance to hear music from Blackfield V, his collaboration with Aviv Geffen and Alan Parsons of Abbey Road/Dark Side of the Moon/ Pilot fame.

Lastly, we have some music from The Anchoress and Iamthemorning (both award-winners this year) from the 'rare' part of their canon.

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.
