Supporting Adam Stafford next week at Leith Depot, Edinburgh is the debut of Half-Life Working Group, a new project from Wounded Knee aka Drew Wright. Loops and drones and lones and droops. Drew's done everything from weird electronics to trad folk to children's songs, and collaborated with everyone from Alasdair Roberts to National Galleries of Scotland to Lord Of The Isles. He's released music with Gerry Loves Records, Drag City Records, Firecracker Recordings and many more. Expect something truly inventive but rooted in classic traditions. Probably. It's a small space, we'd advise getting tickets http://buff.ly/2sXwfH0

"Stafford's use of loops and delay mean you can always hear a ghostly after-image of what’s come before, yet what lies ahead is a surprise right to the last. It makes for a demanding listen, but a rich and evocative one that rewards your attention." — The Skinny on Adam Stafford's Reverse Drift.

Adam Stafford is an experimental pop master. After last year's Taser Revelations (Song, by Toad) embraced the 'pop' end of that spectrum, he's back at the 'experimental' end for his latest project. REVERSE DRIFT is the kind of multimedia experiment he was always meant to make: a 56-page photobook paired with a 40-minute recording. The beautiful photobook features 24 landscape photographs by Adam, taken over a period of 18 years, 1999-2017. The single composition in three movements was recorded live and semi-improvised in one take with no overdubs and was created only with a synthesizer, a sequencer, some effects pedals and Adam's voice. Reverse Drift: when too much ice thaws and breaks next to an ocean or river it makes the water run backwards. Release date: 30th June 2017 Listen to a 6-minute excerpt of the continuous piece - http://buff.ly/2rCrUFC Pre-order now: http://buff.ly/2rCfJZy LAUNCH SHOWS Thursday 29th June Stereo, Glasgow Adam Stafford + main support TBC + Sonny Carntyne + Paul Cowan Tickets: http://buff.ly/2rCm2w6 Ticket + photobook/album bundle: http://buff.ly/2rCfJZy Facebook event: http://buff.ly/2rCpAyD Friday 30th June Newport Sound at Rio Community Centre, Newport-on-Tay Adam Stafford + Sonny Carntyne + Crakes Ticket info: http://ift.tt/2rJJo56 Facebook event: http://ift.tt/2rJJo56 Saturday 1st July Leith Depot, Edinburgh Adam Stafford + Half-Life Working Group (Drew Wright/Wounded Knee) + Sonny Carntyne Tickets: http://ift.tt/2sHNIz8 Ticket + photobook/album bundle: http://buff.ly/2rCfJZy Facebook event: http://ift.tt/2rJKP3C ABOUT THE PROJECT From Adam: "Reverse Drift came to fruition after myself and Gerry Loves Records had a conversation in 2014 about releasing a collection of photography with some music. I have been taking pictures since I was in high school and the oldest image in the collection, 'Lionthorn' dates back to 1999 and was hand printed in the dark room of my art class in school. I have always been interested in human-less landscapes and tried to visually capture that in my short film 'The Shutdown' (2009), with most of the pictures in this book either conveying empty rooms, empty vistas, or vistas shot through the windows of empty rooms. I had also been looking for an excuse to record and release an album of improvised music and this gave me the chance to explore that. The track Reverse Drift could have been chopped-up and issued as segments or tracks but I wanted to present it as a long continuous piece of music that you experience, for better or worse, in one sitting." http://buff.ly/2rCwq78
