A collection of darkly-captivating songs, featuring the intimate allure of Silje's Leirvik's unique voice and the superb arrangements of Rhys Marsh.
The first release on Marsh's Autumnsongs imprint, With The Lights Turned Out So Beautiful is an album of dramatic and emotional contrasts tied together by a combination of dynamic arrangements and haunting orchestrations, where walls of guitars and luscious string sections collide with ghostly Mellotron tones and atmospherics.
Scandinavian Noir made music.
With The Lights Turned Out So Beautiful is presented in a mini-lp style gatefold sleeve and contains a 12 page booklet.
Comprising flute and acoustic guitar instrumentals, Moonspinner is a continuation of the delicate and melodic Classical/Progressive hybrid releases Sketches of Satie (with Steve Hackett), Velvet Afternoon and Prelude to Summer.
Moonspinner contains 14 John Hackett compositions, plus Debussy's Syrinx for solo flute and JS Bach's Andante from BWV 1034.
'A beautiful album. Uplifting, beguiling and utterly charming.' - DPRP
Shifting from acoustic intimacy to metallic rage and from raga to dark electronics, Alessandro Monti's 2006 debut release as Unfolk combined unorthodox music for mandolin, with ethnic percussion, violin and a variety of guitars/electronic processes.
This expanded edition is re-mastered by Jon Astley and features extra tracks, plus a bonus cd of live material by the Unfolk Collective.
The exclusive live cd contains excerpts from both live performances of The Venetian Book Of The Dead in Venice and Leicester, and includes special guest Kevin Hewick on vocals and guitar.
Steve Hackett's second homage to his time with Genesis features performances from a stellar line-up including Steven Wilson, John Wetton, Nick Beggs, Mikael Akerfeldt and Steve Rothery (amongst many others).
The song selection includes tasteful reinterpretations of 1970s Genesis classics such as Supper's Ready, The Lamia, The Musical Box and Entangled.
In a year that has brought Octane Twisted, Get All You Deserve and Love And Endings, we thought it appropriate to launch a Steven Wilson Live store containing all the available live albums featuring Steven Wilson in his various guises.
