Emotive ivories motifsmith Yann Tiersen has a new studio, venue and community centre named The Eskal on ol’ Ushant, the Breton Celtic Sea island he calls home. ALL is his first album recorded in this studio. It features basslines dancing with emotive right-hand arpeggios on the ivories, evocative field recordings of things such as children’s voices and charming reversed-tape textures with post-rock guitar ambience. ALL you could ever want.
