Distance, Light & Sky – Casting Nets – CD or LP + CD
CD in digipack or 180G LP with Gatefold Sleeve which includes a CD
Classic and sublime songs seperate artists like Distance, Light & Sky from the mainstream. Their wonderful debut album consists of 10 amazing tracks analogue recorded in the Sono Studios in Prague with legendary producer Phill Brown (Talk Talk – “Spirit of Eden”). Songwriter Chris Eckman (Walkabouts) knows how to tie on to the best times of The Walkabouts but Distance, Light & Sky is not a solo- not either a side project it is truly a band of its own.
Their debut “Casting Nets” is a melancholy but optimistic album made of quiet and calm sounds, multifarious and nuanced, shaped by its composers and their various characters Eckman, Acda and Thielemans and the unique recording technique of producer Phill Brown. It’s a true pleasure to listen to the duets of Chantal Acda with her female voice and Chris Eckman with his sonorous baritone voice. Most fascinating of all is the fact that these 3 totally different artists made the grade to bunch their varied influences into a homogenous and harmonic sound construct called “Casting Nets”.Distance, Light & Sky explore new horizons and they’ll help you to escape the drab monotony of everyday life. “Casting Nets” is an unspectacular but truly wonderful album for the cold seasons of the year. We’re very happy to welcome this amazing band at Glitterhouse Records.
