В лучших традициях Epic45 и July Skies. Большое спасибо за открытие такого таланта.

A Dancing Beggar is the musical project of 21-year-old musician, James Simmons. Having played a mixture of drums and guitar in previous bands, a solo project seemed the next step in achieving other creative goals. Using just a laptop, a couple of guitars and a cheap microphone, everything is written, recorded, mixed and produced in his bedroom.

Influenced by seminal post-rock artists like Maps, Sigur Ros, Amusement Parks On Fire, and Epic45, A Dancing Beggar began in summer 2007. After the purchase of some recording equipment a number of songs were written, recorded and distributed across MySpace. It wasn’t until early 2008 that a collection of songs seemed to link together for a possible release. These were recorded and subsequently turned into the 5 track EP 'How They Grow' which has been described by The Stool Pigeon as a 'post rock treat'. In late 2008 the entire EP was re-mixed, and on the 23rd February 2009 Grand Independent released ‘How They Grow’, as a 6 track EP on iTunes. ‘How They Grow’ takes elements of post-rock and shoegaze and has been compared to the sounds of Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky, Ulrich Schnauss and July Skies.

As of March 2009, work had begun on new songs for A Dancing Beggar’s eagerly anticipated full-length album, ‘What We Left Behind’. These songs are more acoustic based, less distorted and euphoric with emphasis on a more organic sound. Composed and mixed by James, all eleven tracks were recorded in James’ bedroom again using an acoustic and electric guitar, microphone and laptop, between November 2008 and June 2009. This time incorporating field recordings by artists Peter Caeldries, Adam Danz and Cynthia Lawson, samples of which can be heard on ‘Our Distant Memories’, ‘Skinny Trees’ and ‘Branches and Nettles’. Notably an extract of ‘Day 16 - Recall Your Favorite Childhood Memory’ by Cynthia Lawson, a story about how she nearly jumped into a swimming pool with no water in it when she was very young. Such samples only compliment the ethereal sounds of ‘What We Left Behind’, marking a turning point in the maturity of A Dancing Beggar’s music which in most parts navigates around the concept of nostalgia.

A Dancing Beggar is the moniker of Brighton based artist James Simmons. Having released a six track EP - 'How They Grow', full length LP 'What We Left Behind', as well as collaborations with Franz Kirmann and Codes in the Cloud, Simmons now comes to Audiobulb.

'Follow the Dark as if it were Light' is what can be called a classic Post-Rock album, it has all the necessary ingredients to be so; the prominence of a repeating guitar, the ever increasing tension brought about by the rhythmic structure, even the name of the tracks and album. References such as Mogwai and Sigur Rós fit perfectly. Simmons achieves a very interesting album, where he explores with sonic landscapes with a subtley and maturity. What is noticeable however, and certainly different from previous works, is the artist's focus on classical drone and ambient stylings.

There is something about the first track 'Creeping into dusk' that instantly grabbed my attention with its haunted voices and string section that submerges the listener completely. This song was sounding very familiar, at first I thought it could be because it reminded me of Arvo Pärt’s work, but then I made the connection and finally came to the conclusion that this song could be included in Gavin Bryars' 'Sinking of the Titanic' masterpiece. Indeed, I would say Creeping into Dusk is the stand-out song of the album. 'Stars Bring Us Closer', 'There is Hope Here' and 'Returning' feature warming bass lines like strong undercurrents, full of euphoria and slowly resolving phrases.

And this is where I think Follow the Dark as if it were Light adds up to a very interesting release. The combination of the contemporary classical and ambient elements with the tradition of Post-Rock delivers subtle treasures buried below the sonic guitar barriers, and this will, with added listenings provide a very pleasant discovery of a world underneath the surface.

спаааать. он идеально для этого подходит)) и на самом деле оставляет неплохое впечатление.
Спасибо большое, с нетерпением ждал новый альбом, но не знал, когда он может выйти, а тут так внезапно и такая радость. Daytrip to Glynde в свое время не на шутку впечатлил.
Обалденно круто! Скачал и не пожалел. Зашел кликнуть спасибку StyleSmile и скачать предыдущий альбомsmile.gif
