Gordon, Storm : Songs for Birdman
'Cosmopolitan singer songwriter... draws from the experiences of a life lived on remote Scottish islands, in European capitals & on the LA club scene, to create a beguiling hybrid of ambient beats, experimental electronics & vocalising rooted in 40's jazz... erotically-charged percolations... this is a luscious piece of work.' ~ Johnny Black, Q Magazine '('Songs for Birdman') a curious album... makes great listening.' ~ Flux Magazine, UK '...superb Chill-out...' ('Songs for Birdman' - album of the month) ~ Sunday Post, UK 'Very romantic, blessed with a superb, pure voice...second to none.' ~ Caledonia Magazine, UK '('Songs for Birdman')...a delightful trip hop-influenced collection of songs... 'Moonrope' has Gordon sounding like a jazz singer while the beats are buzzing round like bees... 'The Healing' circles Gordon's vocals in a Cocteau Twins-like fashion, while the backing is more soulful... 'Forbidden Fruit' is hauntingly sensual & has a faint touch of Björk's latest work...' ~ Anna Maria Stjärnell, Collected Sounds, US '...her voice is absolutely breathtaking... bring her to New York!' ~ The Fevered Brain of RadioMike, NYC --------------------------------------------------------------- Album Credits: Vocals ~ Storm Gordon Instruments & programming ~ David Galbraith Additional keyboards & programming: Stevie Christie (tracks 3-7) Calum Malcolm (tracks 7 & 9) DJ Dolphinboy (tracks 2 & 7) DJ Pete Smith/Adam 'Pablo' Foster (track 4) Additional percussion & drum samples: Stevie Christie (tracks 2 & 7) James MacIntosh (tracks 2 & 8) Neil Sommerville (track 1) Drongo (track 8) Recorded & produced by David Galbraith & mixed by D.
