Track Of The Day: P.J. Philipson - 'Landings at Stanage Edge'

Here's something absolutely perfect for a relaxing warm summer's evening. I first heard this on Gideon Coe's wonderful show on BBC 6Music a few weeks ago and it took me away to an utterly tranquil place. It's taken from an album entitled 'Peaks', which was released earlier this week (May 12) via the newly-launched Little Crackd Rabbit Records (yes, it's spelt without an 'e'). A press release announces this beautiful track as "Solo stereo delay guitar recorded entirely live one summer night in a Manchester church. Melodic, rhythmic, inventive and spacious, P.J. Philipson's playing takes its cue from innovators like Robert Fripp, Vini Reilly, Robin Guthrie, Michael Rother and Richard Skelton, but has a fully-realised concept unique to itself. Each track on this, Philipson's solo debut, is titled and based around locations in England's Peak District, creating a strong sense of place and emotional attachment." P.J. Philipson is a guitarist and producer who also plays in Starless And Bible Black (Locust Music) and The Woodbine And Ivy Band.

Brilliantly, the calming sensation of 'Landings At Stanage Edge' is available as a FREE download! Get hold of it via the media player below...
