Alexi Murdoch Heads Towards The Sun

30 Jan

Of the many singer-songwriters who have managed to capture the powerful musical Brit-axis of Nick Drake/John Martyn/Richard Thompson, Alexi Murdoch has always come the closest. Since the release of his debut Four Songs EP, which contained the song “Orange Sky” he’s been the one singer-songwriter who has deftly managed to define his own unique sound in that space. It’s a space that draws you in with intimacy and longing, evocative memory and moving story telling. It’s also a space of acoustic music, defined by languid and soothing energy. It’s been five years since the release of his last full length record Time Without Consequence with a soundtrack stop along the way for the Sam Mendes film Away We Go. Murdoch, fiercely independent and DIY, is sticking to his indie-verve and is releasing his new album Towards The Sun on his own Zero Summer Records on March 8th. As with his previous work, it’s a stunner.
