Carousell – Black Swallow & Other Songs

Fans of sparse, string instrument-laden, modern classical music rejoice! UK composer Richard Skelton’s much lauded release under the name Carousell, Black Swallow & Other Songs, has finally gotten the vinyl reissue treatment via Digitalis. It’s a truly brilliant album and an easy one to love – (part of the reason the initial CD-R pressing of 100 sold out instantly and Digitalis is already sold out of their portion of this edition). Cut very much from the same thread as Landings, Skelton’s Type Records breakthrough, Black Swallow & Other Songs is a record that begs to be listened to, to be soaked in, and to be shared with as many people as possible. Truly beautiful music.
