Reseña de álbum

On his second full-length album, Scottish-by-way-of-Los-Angeles folk singer/songwriter Alexi Murdoch continues to explore a quiet, contemplative style reminiscent of Nick Drake. Another comparison would be the early, folky fellow Scotsman Donovan of "Try for the Sun" and "Colours." Murdoch sets up simple, repetitive fingerpicked patterns on his acoustic guitar, adding quiet horn and keyboard parts in the back of the mix, and over this music he murmurs introspective, poetic lyrics in which he uses typical nature imagery and abstract contrasts (light and dark is a favorite) to reflect on relationships with relatives and other loved ones. This is minimalist music in which the musician, in his words and arrangements, is tracing only the barest outlines, expecting the listener to fill in the feelings he only suggests. It is appropriate that the album ends with the last part of "Crinan Wood," a song that lists at 8:45, although it isn't really any longer, as a song, than the other tracks, it's just that the last three minutes subside into an ambient instrumental, a long, slow journey into silence.

The Swelling of the Sea

For those of us waiting ever so impatiently for the digital release of 'Through the Dark,' it has been a long time coming. After the palpable buzz that this song left with appearances in both "Gone Baby Gone" and "House," many thought that this would be the sole jewel set within a light setting of background noise. Oh how we were wrong! In between Alexi's lamenting vocals and deft string picking come soft but powerful tones emanating like the swelling of the sea. Songs like "Some Day Soon" and "At Your Door" bring a vivid clarity to a pervading haze like the sun breaking through an overcast sky. His songs seem to walk the fine line between an infinite sadness and a stoic perseverance to find the beauty within it all. This small collection is Alexi at his best yet.

Everything you hoped it would be, and more....Worth the wait

I bought this CD through Alexi's website about a year ago, from a limited release he offered. It is clear that I have been in the lucky few who have been able to enjoy this album for so long. I have listened to it almost daily since I purchased it a year or so ago.

Towards the sun is one album you will find yourself listening to in its entirety over and over again. No matter your expectations, they will be met on this fine release.

The clear diamond on this album is through the dark, but the title track is equally beautiful and haunting. Slow Revolution is also

Thank you for bringing this album to the forefront and out of the obscurity in which it has lived for far too long.

Finally

I have been dying for more Alexi Murdoch for so long and thankfully this album does not dissapoint. His tone is as smooth and soulful as ever. This album will quickly become my most played

Biografía

Nacido/a: London, England

Género: Alternativa

Años de actividad: '00s

In late 2003, things picked up rapidly and a bit weirdly for folkie Alexi Murdoch. Moving to balmy Los Angeles from Scotland in the late '90s, Murdoch let the sleepy, weepy U.K. folk sound seep into indie and lo-fi influences. But he never did much with his music beyond some local gigs, he worried about damaging his personal attachment to the songs. That was until September 2003, when Murdoch appeared on Nic Harcourt's tastemaking Morning Becomes Eclectic show on the L.A. public radio outlet KCRW....
