New Sloth Racket video

Sloth Racket has a new video! Our good friend¬†Ben Owen has made this great short film of us playing at a LUME gig at The Vortex in May this year. The piece we play is called ‘Shapeshifters’ and will appear on our second album, coming out in Summer 2017.

More videos of the band can be found on the Sloth Racket page. Also this month, some new nice words about the band have appeared online; from Dave Sumner on his latest Bird Is The Worm ‘This Is Jazz Today’ dispatch, and from Stewart Smith in his 2016 jazz/improv roundup on The Quietus. Thanks both!

Canterbury adventures with Tullis Rennie and Far Rainbow

Some recordings have emerged of a nice gig I was involved in last month. Extra Normal Records invited me, Tullis Rennie and Far Rainbow to play at a specially-curated edition of the long-running Canterbury night Free Range. Tullis and I played a duo, then Far Rainbow played a set, then we all joined together for a quartet to end the evening. It was a lovely gig: Kyle (Extra Normal) and Sam (Free Range) were great hosts! You can listen to the sets on Soundcloud:
