about

www.flau.jp/releases/39.html

For me the urge to write music happens very rarely, and the desire to record what has been written is rarer still. Listening to these pieces now is like rereading an old diary - feelings of wonder, of sadness, of excitement, of falling in love.
A recording is a document, and certainly for me this music is a memory of a time that has passed. I am happy it is getting a second life on Flau!
- Danny Norbury

In this reissue edition, we are delighted to include gorgeous bonus tracks, including his first ep 'Dusk' (from Static Caravan, 2006) and closing track 'Fragment 2' (from 'Bluebeard' Wist Rec, 2012).

“Amazing record, full of spirit, patience and beauty. One of the best releases of last year by a country mile” - Norman Records

“Every note. Every moment. Important. I feel like I need to listen to this record over and over and over...It’s stunning. It really is. It lingers in your brain. Each subtle piano note delicately sprinkled beautifully throughout. Each lush cello piece. Sweeping strings” - TheSteinbergPrinciple

“Light in August” is just breathtaking wonderful. Highly recommended! ” - Digital in Berlin

The Boats、Nancy Elizabeth、aus、Rafael Anton Irisarri、Library Tapesなどの作品やライヴで名脇役として活躍している英マンチェスターの名チェリストDanny Norburyの2009年のデビュー・アルバム『Light In August』。Danny Norburyの自宅で録音された本作は、ウィリアム・フォークナーの同名小説から取られたタイトル通り、人との触れ合いと孤独感の間を揺れ動く様を、狂おしい程に心を締め付ける美しい旋律で綴ったパーソナルな空気感に満ち溢れています。夜空の星にまで届くかのように伸びやかに響く優美なチェロと、インティメイトなアップライト・ピアノの調べ。一度触れれば壊れそうな程の繊細さと儚さに彩られた名作です。
ボーナストラックとして、Robag WruhmeがKompaktからリリースした名ミックス『Wuppedeckmischmampflow』でも冒頭で使われた名曲「Speak Memory」他、Static Caravanから2007年にリリースされ、即廃盤となった幻のファースト・ミニアルバム『Dusk』を丸ごと収録。『Light In August』の初回盤にボーナストラックとして収録されていた「Goodnight」、Wist Recからリリースされた「Fragment 2」のレアトラック2曲の計8曲を初CD化しています。
