Ed Harcourt
Monochrome To Colour

As someone who’s found success writing songs for Paloma Faith, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Marianne Faithfull, it’s always been a crying shame that Ed Harcourt has never found commercial success in his own right. The ninth album in a career stretching back to the turn of the millennium, hopefully Monochrome To Colour can correct that. Featuring Portishead’s Clive Deamer on drums, it’s a beautifully crafted mix of ancient and modern instrumentation and styles. 

The Quiet Temple
The Quiet Temple

Who do we find inside The Quiet Temple? Well, primarily Rich Machin and Duke Garwood, joined by a rotating selection of musicians with past experience with Stereolab, Spiritualized/Coil (Thighpaulsandra) (among others). Together, this gang have created this self-titled debut album, a groovy, jazzy, live-feeling album that covers lots of tasty sonic ground.

The Quiet Temple
The Last Opium Den (On Earth)

Lead single from The Quiet Temple’s forthcoming debut album. Duke Garwood and Soulsavers’ Richard Machin’s merry band of players, made up of an ever-changing collection of musicians like Julian Cope, Spiritualized and Stereolab, prioritise improvisation to synthesise the underground sleaze of the world’s last opium den.

Nico Casal

Most known for his work in film composition, Nico Cascal strikes out on his own terms with this debut LP Alone, luscious piano minimalism meeting subtle flourishes of electronic manipulation. Cascal is patient in his attempts to achieve his compositional aims, creating subtle music out of looping repetition and a love of the understatement.

Ed Harcourt
Beyond The End

Famed for writing exquisite pop songs that plough similar furrows to Paul McCartney and Brian Wilson on albums such as Here Be Monsters before turning his hand to being songwriter to the stars, Ed Harcourt follows his expansive major label debut, Furnaces (2016), with a real curveball. Beyond The End is an album of piano-led instrumentals, with inspiration taken from Saite, Mozart, Debussy, Max Richter, Philip Glass and Warren Ellis all imbued with Harcourt’s melodic and mournful sensibilities. LP and CD on Point Of Departure.
