Album Review: King Creosote And Jon Hopkins - Diamond Mine (Double Six)
A spectral story told gently from start to finish
The sound of ebbing waves and agitated seafowl drifts in and out, and the songs are sprawling, pastoral and freeform, like a Celtic take on Talk Talk’s ‘Spirit Of Eden’. The eerie, mist-shrouded ‘Running On Fumes’ is the standout track, but really, ‘Diamond Mine’ should be taken as a whole, at night, in the dark, with some Scotch and a blanket.
