I’m actually really proud of this release. It’s September. I’m at Portmerion. It’s the day after Festival No 6, hot, bright, some kind of perfect. I walk in the sun, on the peninsular, alone, and have this feeling that turns into a sort of dream poem that turns into a song. Strings are by Cheiko, we met in Japan at Yasushi’s store. She transformed an idea into a beautiful reality. It’s the preview single from How To Disappear Completely. That’s out next March. There will be a launch party. iTunes US: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/portmerion-tide-flow-ep/id1048029417 iTunes UK: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/portmerion-tide-flow-ep/id1048029417 Spotify: Bleep: https://bleep.com/release/65419-chris-coco-portmerion-tide-flow Juno: http://www.junodownload.com/products/chris-coco-portmerion-tide-flow/2912112-02/
Film Music 2 is the latest in an ongoing series of EPs of ambient and filmic tracks. The common thread is the collaboration between Chris Coco and Lol Hammond. The guest on EP two is the stellar keyboard player Roger Eno, collaborator with brother Brian on the classic Apollo album. Find it in the Shop on this site.
Our Balearic album is now available in all good record stores on vinyl, CD and download. Huzzah! http://www.piccadillyrecords.com/prod/VariousArtists-Balearic-Balearic-103755.html https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/balearic/id1000951202
I have started making some playlists on Spotify. If streaming is the future for music delivery then it’s good to be involved in however small a way in curation on that platform. There are three so far that I will update regularly. Balearic, Melodica Radio Show, and Nightbus: Late Night Electronica. They have these, not very inviting links: Though, of course, on Spotify you just look for the Chris Coco artist page and scroll down to Playlists. Enjoy.
