Kenny Anderson aka King Creosote presents an expanded performance of music from his new album, Astronaut Meets Appleman, mixing traditional Folk instrumentation with elements of electronica.
Taking a more experimental approach to his usual work, Astronaut Meets Appleman explores our relationship with technology, juxtaposing looping vocals and electronic ambience with the innocence of his daughter’s vocals and his characteristic mix of bagpipes and accordion. With his usual band augmented by a larger ensemble here, this is a chance to see the rich textures and layered instrumentation of his new record fully realised live.
'King Creosote’s finest hour yet' Mojo 4*
'His wrinkled brogue – warm, pithy, occasionally fluttering to a falsetto – is a thing of understated beauty in itself, framed in folk-shanty arrangements that make telling use of strings and bagpipes' Uncut 8/10
