ACOUSTIKA

iZMO: Folk
Sub iZMO: Neofolk

ǂ Acoustika is a Nottingham based singer, poet and wandering musician. The debut album, "Why Pilots Eject" features a collection of melodic, dark and poetic songs about life, love and loss. The album features orchestration by Julian Cope and was recorded at Brain Donor Studios with Doggen (Julian Cope Band, Spiritualized). ǂ ***DEBUT EP RELEASE*** ǂ (Excerpt taken from Julian Copes September Drudion Newsletter headheritage.co.uk) ǂ ACOUSTIKA E.P. by Acoustika. ǂ "Treading dark fŲlk territory is the Nottingham singer/poet Acoustika, whose CD debut is currently available on Julian Copes own Fuck Off & Di label. ǂ This five-song release opens with the truly heroic epic ballad 'Bespoke Love Song', a desperate and moving affair which sounds like some rural Kurdt Cobain declaiming hoarsely from the end of his tether, and backed by that same cavernous orchestra that Scott Walker employed on SCOTT 2. ǂ Elsewhere, Acoustika's highly melancholic groove is mainly a lonely acoustic guitar-driven one, and Julian Copes personal favourite is the deep emptiness of the lost-in-space ballad 'Am I Not Yours?' ǂ Long time Cope watchers will recognise Acoustika as the cover star of last year's album YOU GOTTA PROBLEM WITH ME, and he is also a featured singer on Julian Copes new BLACK SHEEP album." ǂ This EP is too much of a limited edition to be available via Head Heritage, so score your own copy directly from the artist himself at adyfletcher@hotmail.com ǂ
