Will Howlett Getting some Belew eras King Crimson vibes, always welcome.

Don't equate that to being aKC clone though, this is mightily fresh. Favorite track: Eclipse.

Michael Stevens Great album. Just one guy plus a whole load of great musicians - quite 'haunting' music in places. Well worth the GBP8 IMHO.

about

New Album Alexandrine by Art Rock artist Grice

London-born, Art Rock musician GRICE returns with his second album Alexandrine, which builds on his highly-regarded debut album Propeller. His music has been described as ‘a challenging cocktail of electro-acoustic glitch, art-rock and avant-pop synthesis tempered into passionate and well-crafted songs.’



With GRICE taking centre-stage on guitars and vocals, Alexandrine features sonic innovator Richard Barbieri (Porcupine Tree, originally from UK electro pioneers Japan) on keyboards and as co-producer on a numbers of tracks. The 12-track album was mixed by Steve Jansen (Japan/Rain Tree Crow) who also lends his unique percussive input, tonalities and treatments to the work.

Alexandrine includes performances from a unique line-up, including Hossam Ramzy (Led Zeppelin/Peter Gabriel) on percussion, Italian freeform trumpet player Luca Calabrese, BJ Cole on pedal-steel guitar (Felt/T-Rex), Suzanne Barbieri (vocals) and violinist Steve Bingham (No-Man). The core band comprises of Al Swainger on bass, double bass and pedals and 05Ric (Gavin Harrison) on drums.

‘Alexandrine is a multi-faceted rare gem, an intricate play of changing colours and unique rhythms diffracted by GRICE’S passionate vocals and powerful songwriting.’

Alexandrine is released on hungersleep records.

The album is available as a digital download and as a physical CD in an elegant card digipak with original artwork by British artist Elizabeth McAlpine, through Burning Shed, hungersleep records, bandcamp and all the usual digital outlets (iTunes, Amazon etc).
