Emmettronica 1998-2012 (BEM012)
Emmettronica, the second album on Bad Elephant Music from multi-instrumentalist Emmett Elvin, is released on 27th July.
Emmett released a collection of pieces - written and assembled in his home studio between 1998 and 2005 - with this title in 2013 in digital-only format. This new double CD - as a single CD price - contains all of those tunes together with fourteen new instrumentals recorded by Emmett in the same manner from 2006 onwards.
To quote the man himself:
"I don't create music with a specific band in mind. The material lands in my head and I simply do my best to bring it out of the ether and into the so-called real word. Most of the material gathered here didn't fit in to the criteria of any of the bands I play with and write for. What binds it together is that all of these tunes were started and finished in one session, assembled and sequenced on my Mac, hence the title 'Emmettronica'"
The CD package is designed by Emmett himself (he's also an acclaimed artist), and comes in a double 'gatefold' sleeve.
Bloody Marvels (BEM006)
Following the digital release of his acclaimed collection of electronic and sample-based music, Emmettronica, in 2013, Bloody Marvels is a collection of largely instrumental pieces performed on acoustic instruments. Emmett is a master of guitar as well as keyboards, and plays a bewildering variety of both stringed, keyed, struck and blown instruments to create this beguiling, atmospheric and haunting album. Strong on melody and mood, with occasional moments of both playfulness and terror, these fourteen songs – together with two bonus tracks – will transport the listener into Emmett’s musical realm, leaving a long-lasting impression of its beauty in the heart and the mind.
