James Yorkston - The Route To The Harmonium (CD ALBUM (1 DISC))

James Yorkstonwill release his new album The Route to the Harmoniumon Feb 22nd2019; produced by Yorkstonand David Wrench (the mixer and producer who has worked with the likes of Caribou, Four Tet, Frank Ocean, FKA Twigs and David Byrne), it is James' first solo record since 2014's CellardykeRecording and Wassailing Society (CRAWS)and follows the two collaborative albums he made as one third of Yorkston/Thorne/Khan as well as the release of his debut novel Three Craws in 2016.

The Route to the Harmonium(or, 'the search for peace') is intensely personal; it's the sound of home, of undisturbed craftmanship. Listen closely and you can imagine him putting it together. Overlaying vocal and guitar tracks, adding further with Dulcitones, harmoniums and autoharps, with nyckelharpa, the distinctive Swedish stringed instrument given to him by a friend. And friends and family, past and present swim all over his songs. Remembering them, and those you've shared life with, those who leave and those who remain, is the strongest thread running through these affecting, extraordinary songs. This is Yorkston'sworld and could be nowhere else in music.
