:: VINYL EDITION DUE FOR RELEASE AUTUMN 2014 :: Email skire.info@gmail.com with any enquiries.

Recorded during summer 2013 after returning to his hometown on the North-West coast of England, Teal draws on a wider palette than Scott's previous solo releases, moving between rich, densely treated atmospheres and lucid reflective moments. The tensions and ease of summer spent in a place haunted by distant memories and fading childhood sentiment.

Jüppala Kääpiö (literally "woops" in Swiss-French and "gnome" in Finnish) is a Swiss/Japanese duo formed in 2006 by Carole and Hitoshi Kojo. They are settled in Belgium since 2011 after living in Switzerland, Japan, Canada and Mongolia.
The duo uses various folk/ethnic instruments, handmade devices, found objects, field recordings and voices. They delicately weave them into colourful and textural organic sound tapestries through electric devices. This hybrid style crosses over various fields which would be described as cosmopolitan folk, psychedelic drone, authorial ambient, atmospheric noise, psychic field recordings… However, the inspiration has always been derived from the nature and the supernatural on the earth.


Andrew Chalk & Tom James Scott released their first duo recording in 2013 through Scott's own Skire label.
Wild Flowers saw the delicate surface of Scott's hushed piano playing occasionally blurred by Chalk's sensitive and unique approach to production, unearthing a depth of feeling usually heard as an undercurrent to the muted, almost half-sounded surface notes. Evoking distant childhood summers, strings swell and vanish like flashes of light across a weather-beaten lens, enveloping the dampened rush of piano in a haze of elation and loss. 

For their debut live performance as a duo, Chalk and Scott will play analogue synthesizer and grand piano respectively.
