Album Review

Singer/songwriter Ed Harcourt's 2014 effort Time of Dust is a dark yet lyrical six-track EP. Produced by Harcourt along with engineer Dave Izumi Lynch, the EP follows up his sixth full-length album, 2013's Back into the Woods. While certainly a bleak collection, Time of Dust nonetheless finds Harcourt delivering on his longstanding knack for crafting melodic, passionate songs. Here, the Sussex-born pianist and vocalist delves into several immaculately produced, somewhat baroque songs that find him ruminating on such weighty subjects as suicide ("Come into My Dreamland"), war ("We All Went Down with the Ship"), and lost love ("Love Is a Minor Key"). Despite being a mini-album, Time of Dust is — as with most of Harcourt's releases — a substantial recording of arch, demonic grandeur and an essential listen for longtime fans.

Customer Reviews

This record got some great reviews in the press

"Alluring." - The Independent ****

"Sensational." - The Sunday Times

"Grand, cinematic flourishes" - The Daily Mail

Really is the best thing he's done, and he's done a lot of great things.

Just superb!

Ed Harcourt delivers again.

After the demise of his previous band, Snug, British songwriter Ed Harcourt launched a short-lived career as a chef while continuing to write his own songs. A fan of Tom Waits and Jeff Buckley, he quickly abandoned the kitchen in favor of a solo songwriting career, one that found him progressing from bass guitar (his chief instrument with Snug) to a number of other instruments including the piano, guitar, banjo, and drums. Harcourt proved to be a prolific, genre-hopping musician and spent much of...
