Scottish folk musician follows Jon Hopkins collaboration with more traditional songs

King Creosote - 'From Scotland With Love'

Album Info

  • Release Date: July 21, 2014
  • Label: Domino
6 / 10 In 2011, electro wunderkind Jon Hopkins took Scottish folkie legend King Creosote by the hand and led him into a dark, ambient pastoral hinterland – and the pair garnered a Mercury Music Prize nomination for their stark and stunning ‘Diamond Mine’. Creosote’s first album since doesn’t have quite the same woozy charm, trading the lush and eerie textures for gentler, more traditional ditties, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still pleasures to be plundered. ‘Miserable Strangers’ is a bruised lament that’s been chapped-and-cracked by loneliness and ‘For One Night Only’ has the same soaring euphoria as British Sea Power, but the schoolkid-assisted sea shanty of ‘Bluebell, Cockleshell, 123’ feels like a backwards step after such innovation last time round.
