Artist Of The Day: King Creosote
Even by Mercury standards, this was a long shot. Hailing from Fife, Kenny Anderson has been relentlessly pumping out music since 1998, and currently has more than 40 LPs to his name; most existing in severely limited physical numbers. Seven years in the making, Diamond Mine saw songs from across Anderson's catalogue set against Hopkins' blissful ambient soundscapes, a combination which more often than not yielded truly mesmerising results. Now, with the additional Honest Words EP and yet another solo album already behind him, Anderson is embarking on his latest project, a series of EPs released through Domino records. The first installment, I Learned From The Gaels dropped in May, with its follow-up, To Deal With Things due later this month. As with the rest of his catalogue, it's sure to be worth investment.
To Deal With Things will be released on August 27. You can stream its lead track, "Ankle Shackles" here.
