MP3 Premiere: New Roger Eno/Plumbline Track


“Pulling Strings” taken from new album due out in July.

 By Blurt Staff

 This summer will see the release of the second Roger Eno / Plumbline collaboration, Endless City / Concrete Garden. The album was written and produced by Eno and Plumbline – aka Will Thomas – with a recording process similar to the last album – a long distance affair via file trading.  Rarely have the two recorded in the same room yet the results still manage to sound congruous.  With Will working in New York City/Los Angeles and Roger writing in the East Anglia countryside and touring cities amid the recording process, the title ‘Endless City/Concrete Garden’ grew out of observing the organic side of vast urban atmospheres.

 Endless City/Concrete Garden is being released July 2 in the U.S. by Hydrogen Dukebox – check out the track “Pulling Strings.

It’s been six years since their last album Transparencies, and despite a few nods back to Transparencies the new songs are certainly a departure.  Still implemented are field recordings, electronics and Roger’s signature plaintive piano but with addition of guitars and even some koto.  In addition Isaiah Gage contributes cello and Maxim Moston (Antony & the Johnsons) adds violin to several several numbers.
