Exciting times! This week we took delivery of all of the parts for the latest Latitudes release - Alexander Tucker & Decomposed Orchestra's Grey Onion. We packed up enough to give Mr Tucker some copies to take down to ATP with him this weekend, and also to get it on sale in the Southern shop.
This is not Mr. Tucker's first appearance for Latitudes - he has served alongside Stephen O'Malley and Tony Sylvester as Ginnungap on GMT0:02. Now with the release of Grey Onion he gets his own, long overdue centre stage. This is the first appearance of Decomposed Orchestra - something Alex will be treating you to more of soon via his home team at ATP Recordings. Adding additional instrumentation to his alchemical layers of hypnotic strings and voice has helped the already unique Tucker sound move into new directions, as brooding saxophone snakes menacingly through the riff-heavy atmosphere, and the teasing strains of the clarinet amp the spook factor up to maximum.
Grey Onion CDs will be available from later today in the web shop. We just received test pressings for the vinyl - if Alex approves the cut, expect that to be available in about two weeks.
