Following the 2021 releases of MOCKINGBIRD LOVE, PEARLDIVING and RIVIERA the new year brings yet another new release by ROBIN GUTHRIE, an EP, SPRINGTIME, four new titles recorded summer 2021 after the completion of PEARLDIVING. SPRINGTIME a stand alone collection featuring Guthrie’s ever present signature sound and atmosphere. His approach to music is perhaps more akin to that of a painter or a photographer. The adept use of light and shade, melody and counter melody, the carefully and precisely arranged instrumentation, musical textures and colorings gives his music a depth and level of detail, which marks a master craftsman.
“After PEARLDIVING I thought about taking a break as my release schedule has been a bit excessive of late, but I took some time in the studio and got very quickly focused on this as my first release for the new year. Spring is an important time for me, often it’s time to prepare for what’s to come. It can represent new growth. It can also be a good excuse to use a great photo of some springs that I had taken.
