The floating, wistful electronica of Spring In A Small Town is sonic celebration of the chronologies, histories and memories embedded within the ancient woodland and provincial villages of Kent. Growing up in the countryside of South-East England, producer George Cloke developed a deep connection to the local landscape and folklore. “It’s a liminal space: mundane yet magical, tied to heritage and myth, shaped and reformed through a collective misremembering of an idealised past”. Likewise, Spring In A Small Town softens divides between realism and romanticism and the organic and the electronic, cocooning transient melodies within layers of warm vinyl textures and hushed keys, as pastoral field recordings submerge and resurface like half remembered dreams.
The record is an elegiac response to a particular environment, yet its themes of home, community and nature are shared by all. Fluttering between moments of pensive solitude and quiet hope, Spring In A Small Town weaves melodies and textures into a ephemeral glow like that which lights our dreams.
The artist is donating his earnings from the release to Human Appeal's Coronavirus Emergency Appeal, which is fighting the spread of COVID-19 in vulnerable communities around the world, and to local charity Sevenoaks Welcomes Refugees, which provides assistance and support to refugee families resettling in Sevenoaks, Kent.
Spring In A Small Townの浮遊感のある物憂げなエレクトロニック・ミュージックは、英ケントの古い森や田舎の村々に埋もれている年代記、歴史、記憶を讃えたサウンドです。イギリス南東部の田舎で生まれたプロデューサーのGeorge Clokeは、地元の風景やフォークロアとの深いつながりを育んできました。同様に、Spring In A Small Townでは、リアリズムとロマンティシズム、オーガニックとエレクトロニックの間の隔たりを和らげ、牧歌的なフィールドレコーディングが不確かな夢のように水に潜ったり再浮上したりを繰り返し、儚いメロディーを暖かいヴァイナルのテクスチャーとハスリングされた鍵盤の層の中に包み込んでいます。
このアルバムは特定の環境へのエレジーな反応でありながら、家庭、コミュニティ、自然というテーマは誰もが共有しているといえるでしょう。哀愁に満ちた孤独と静かな希望の間を飛び交うSpring In A Small Townは、私たちの夢を照らすような儚い光の中にメロディーとテクスチャーを織り込んでいます。
