First off, Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year...
I have a new 16 track concept album 'Lost Property', which is being released 1st March 2012.
Here's a promotional video showcasing the tracks & artwork.
The individual track artwork and Lost Property cover artwork shown on this video are available as part of a bonus download package, received along with a mixed version of the album upon purchase of the physical or digital version, only @ http://kingbastardmusic.com from 1st March 2012.
Following in the footsteps of his 2010 release Beautiful Isolation, Chris Weeks brings us his latest Kingbastard opus 'Lost Property'; a concept album which draws its inspiration from happening upon an old abandoned house whilst walking in the foothills of the Preseli Mountains, West Wales.
A more concise, but no less ambitious record than its predecessor, Lost Property primarily focuses inwardly on the house itself and its immediate surroundings. There are sixteen self-contained tracks, each meticulously depicting the different moods evoked upon discovery, exploration of, and departure from the property; however, each piece flows seamlessly into the next to form a picturesque, immersive and continuous soundscape, where fragile field-recordings, subtle spoken-word, and harmonious vocals rub shoulders with dusty micro-glitched grooves, retro synths, rich sub-bass, lo-fi landscapes and warped guitars; underscored with evolving, ethereal ambience.
Lost Property is the sound of Weeks' creative imagination in full flow; immediately enveloping the listener and never relenting, tracks segue effortlessly, unveiling a unique, genre-defying collage of beautifully crafted, descriptive sonic textures that honestly encapsulate the artist's experience and emotions.
