Julia Kent - Green and Grey (expanded) + UK Tour

Julia Kent - Green and Grey (expanded) + UK tour

BAY107V RGB300
New York-based cellist/composer Julia Kent’s celebrated second album, Green and Grey (2011), is to be released on vinyl for the very first time for Black Friday 2019. Across two discs, on green and grey coloured vinyl (naturally), this expanded edition features the preceding Last Day in July EP (2010) and two previously unreleased tracks. The gatefold sleeve features a new interpretation of the original artwork.
Originally released in 2011 on Important Recordings and Tin Angel, Green and Grey explores the intersections between the human world and the natural world, the melding of the technological and the organic using Kent’s now trademark looped and layered cello, electronics, and field recordings. It references the patterns and repetitions that exist in nature often mirrored in human creations and also the complexity and fragility of our relationships, with one another and with the world that surrounds us. Without collaborators - other than the insects, weather, and wind sounds that create a sort of exoskeleton for the music - she has created an intensely personal landscape that references the way nature, however subverted and endangered by our modern world, still retains its power.
Let me know if you'd like a stream/download of this release!
