From the Sea

By | February 15, 2011

['From the Sea' album cover]Phantom Circuit has just received its copy of From the Sea, the new solo album by cellist and composer Jo Quail, formerly of SonVer. Jo spoke to us about her work after her gig in Birmingham in April of last year, and you can still hear that interview in show 35. The highlight of her set on that occasion was the striking elegy ‘Rex Infractus’, which sets the agenda on the new CD with a mix of the melodic, atmospheric and subtly experimental, all handled with the sort of finesse that requires repeated listening in order to be fully appreciated. Also included on the CD is ‘The Falconer’, the video for which you may already have seen.

Expect to hear tracks from the CD on Phantom Circuit soon, but if you trust our taste you can just head over to Jo’s site and buy a copy direct from the artist.
