SEÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬ËœOR ALEC THOMPSON ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ 'MOUCHE'
Recorded in various locations and situations in Oxfordshire over an 18-month period on an acoustic guitar whose current whereabouts are unknown, Borley Rectory's second release is MOUCHE, a snapshot of an artist in transition, exploring a new musical language.
SEÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬ËœOR ALEC THOMPSON invites you to the starting point, fingerpicking at the crossroads of Jansch and Fahey, waiting to hitch a ride to the technicolour pastures of Greening Lambourne.
These nine audio postcards, these melancholy-yet-uplifting melodic instrumentals, embellished with minimal home studio flourishes, are proudly presented in audio cassette and digital formats to celebrate SEÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬ËœOR ALEC THOMPSON's emergence from the chrysalis and document the first flap of his wings.
