russell chap As some other northerner says "Durutti Column meets Arthur Russell with faint echoes of Basic Channel". Yeah, I'll have some of that. Beats like skipping stones on water and guitar like sunlight through a canopy of trees. Favorite track: Hey Come On, It's Love.

about

"Northerner returns with an album that places funk, house and dub influences within unlikely British experimental guitar and electronic settings... think Durutti Column meets Arthur Russell with faint echoes of Basic Channel or Massive Attack-esque dub excursions... a really fine, refreshing record that confounds expectations and strikes out on its own..." (Jumbo Records - Leeds, UK)

"Northerner forges an engrossing diversion into dubbed-out and rhythmic electronics.....If you know him from the ambient guitar works on 2009s 'The Ridings' 2CD or early releases on Misplaced and Hibernate, this album may come as a shock....... It's not a wholesale departure, but it is a fairly radical one, from the subtle Arthur Russell-sampling dub lope of 'Hey Come On, It's Love' to the heartwarming deep House melancholy of 'Health and Safety' and even slo-mo Electro on 'Line Noise' or Balearic disco on 'Whistleblower'. But fear not, sleepy pastoral types, his Vini Reilly-esque guitar is still at the core of the album, it's just used in different ways, sometimes lending tender strokes to supple disco grooves or sometimes taking centre stage against crisp, minimalist machine rhythms, but always with that sensitivity to soulful emotion." (Boomkat - Manchester, UK)
