Eclectic indie folk musician, plaintive troubadour and founder of the esteemed Fence Records.
King Creosote, one of our most beloved voices, returns with his new record Astronaut Meets Appleman (released 2 September 2016). It explores the tension and harmony between tradition and technology – between analogue and digital philosophies – and also invokes a feeling, King Creosote (otherwise known as Fife’s Kenny Anderson) says, of “being caught between heaven and earth”.
Astronaut Meets Appleman follows King Creosote’s breakthrough record From Scotland With Love and his Mercury-nominated collaboration with Jon Hopkins, Diamond Mine. It arrives replete with a chamber-rock rabble and then some: harps and bagpipes come as standard, as does silence.
