- The Writing Life by Kinder Scout
8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 11 August 2011
This is bound to excite a few Norman regulars out there, we've got a collaborative CD on Preco from none other than Jason Corder (Color Cassette, Offthesky), Ian Hawgood (Home Normal) and Danny Norbury (The Boats). These three are linked by a complicated chain of artists, musicians and label owners (see press release for details), most notably Craig Tattersall (Mobeer/Moteer) who is also responsible for the incredibly tasteful artwork. Essentially inspired by a deep appreciation of each others work, Corder and Hawgood had already begun collaborating before the decision to enlist Norbury was made and a complete group formed. As you'd expect, 'The Writing Life' draws on each of their talents equally whilst pushing their artistic vision into new territory. As you'd also expect, it's incredibly sombre composition that makes great use of ambiance whilst exploring the potential of their choice of instruments. 'The Writing Life' comprises of four tracks which are titled as if they were acts in a theatre play (First Half, Interlude, Second Half and Epilogue) and can be enjoyed in pretty much the same way. Though fairly ambient in nature 'The Writing Life' would most certainly be an effective soundtrack to a play, movie (of a certain disposition) or piece of modern dance, especially the opener. Its warm string tones and subtle use of guitar and vocal processing are effortlessly tasteful and the trio's ability to craft thoughtful melancholy without delving deep into depressive territory makes for impressive listening.
