(PLEASE give the vinyl master versions a listen. These are closer to how I wanted it to sound!)
Towards the end of AFDFS me and Sharon were lucky enough to be asked to perform a track at Indietracks with A Little Orchestra - a group of very talented musicians who play indiepop music, amongst other things, using lots of orchestral instruments. We asked if they'd like to do a whole album with us and they said yes!
From October 2011 to summer 2012 I spent much of my time tubing it up to Wood Green to Studio Klank where we recorded this album with A Little Orchestra and friends, with Simon Nelson and Gareth Jones on the desk. I'd written lots of baroque pop songs and spent loads of time making rough arrangements - from as far back as when I was in Devon. Kenny Lee from ALO scored the parts and was a massive part of the album, as was Natalie Hudson, who helped organise so many people.
The album was a labour of love and I'm really happy with the results. It took nearly a year and my sanity, but it was worth it, I hope you like it too.
This one is still available in Ltd edition 12" Pink vinyl and ltd edition gatefold CD.
