His finest solo release to date...
King Creosote - From Scotland With Love

Having achieved a sparse, celestial majesty in collaboration with Jon Hopkins on 2011’s ‘Diamond Mine’, Kenny Anderson has approached its follow-up with a broader sonic palette than his, nevertheless endearing, previous work has occupied.

Crafted to soundtrack a film of the same name, released alongside this summer’s Commonwealth Games, these 11 songs still stand tall shorn of context.

The music-hall canter of ‘Largs’ mingles naturally with the stirringly delicate, string-assisted ‘Miserable Strangers’, both offering a reminder of just how remarkably expressive KC’s voice can be.

With lyrical viewpoints and musical references more diverse than ever, this set is his finest solo release to date.
