This is a magic record from the singer of The Raincoats, ANA DA SILVA.
The Raincoats always collaborated on ideas and songs – and played guitars! With this album, The Lighthouse, ANA DA SILVA wanted to do something different – something she hadn’t done before.She decided to buy a small digital instrument which has lots of sounds, a mini keyboard, and a sequencer (you can programme all the notes and beats into its memory) All of the album, except Modinha, was recorded with this instrument and her voice onto an eight track digital recorder. Sometimes this was all very overwhelming, but at least it’s all as she wants it to be, having written, played, recorded and mixed the whole album herself.For her, making The Lighthouse was a really challenging and stimulating experience – she wants the songs to express feelings and to create worlds in which the listener can roam in their own particular way. The album also features a guest appearance of Stuart Moxham (Young Marble Giants)!A limited 7” single “In Awe Of A Painting/ Lithany” in clear vinyl is out now as well.
