Not really sure we can afford to say much here. We posted Leyland Kirby’s last album, An Empty Bliss Beyond This World, a while back and, more recently, flagged a video for one of the singles off that album, I Feel As If I Might Be Vanishing. On both of these posts we extolled the virtues of this radical and experimental yet strangely warm and comforting sculptor of sounds. So there’s probably little left to say. Other than here is his new album, Eager To Tear Apart The Stars. And guess what? Yeah, that’s right. It’s quite unsurprisingly brilliant. James Leyland Kirby, we salute you.
