State River Widening – Early Music

Sophomore release for London instrumental trio

Trending Now

Alongside membership of Wisdom Of Harry and Ellis Island Sound, multi-instrumentalist David Sheppard’s tenure with State River Widening?with Keiron Phelan and Jon Steele?allows free rein to pursue his languorous blurring of acoustic and analogue, the post-rock sound uncoiling gently, the improv feel gleaned from John Fahey.

Broadening the palette from 2000’s eponymous DIY debut, Early Music’s lush pastoralism and warm tones immediately set them apart from the likes of Pullman and chillier Chicago-ites, steering a course somewhere between Gastr del Sol and The Sea And Cake’s new opulence.
