    Gorgeous four track EP - essential listening!!!

    Robin Guthrie released this four track EP ahead of Carousel, an album of filmic, intricate instrumental music

    We have a few words to describe these releases –uplifting, summery, opulent, dreamlike, exquisite, moving –with Guthrie quietly coaxing beauty out of layers of echoes and always  inventive soundscaping.

    Given the quality of Angel Falls and Carousel , it's not surprising that as a guitarist and producer, Guthrie has been a massive influence on everyone from My Bloody Valentine through to Antony and the Johnsons, new 4 A.D. Act The Big Pink andM83. In recent years he's worked with School Of Seven Bells, John Foxx (on this year's Mirrorball album, described by Q Magazine as 'full of myriad charms . . . encompassing the best of both artists'), Ulrich Schnauss, Harold Budd (with whom he made two albums in 2007, Before The Day Breaks and After The Night Falls) and shared a stage with Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine). Most people know about his work in the Cocteau Twins, but he's also produced Ian McCulloch,Edwyn Collins and Felt, as well as defining the now vogue-ishly fashionable early '90s shoegazing scene with his productions for the likes of Lush and Chapterhouse.

    Guthrie is also developing an impressive reputation as a composer of film soundtracks and in the visual arts. He's scored two movies – Greg Araki's Mysterious Skin and the Dany Saadia-directed 3:19- and performed extensively with Lumière, and the recently premiered follow up Galerie, both films he's created as backdrops for his atmospheric, hypnotic guitar-based instrumentals.
