With everything going on in the world right now, the timing couldn’t better for a new album from Gargarin, an ambient-dance project helmed by Graham “Dids” Dowdall.
A veteran musician who played with Nico in the ’80s, Dowdall, who is currently a member of avant-rock legends Peru Ubu and duo Roshi featuring Pars Radio, has collaborated and performed with John Cale, Ludus, Eric Random, Suns of Arqa, Band of Holy Jo and Low Bias.
Dowdall’s undeniable knack for crafting heartfelt electronica tracks rises to the next level on his brand-new full-length album, The Great North Wood (Geo Records).
The album’s title is a reference to the ancient forest of South London as well as “more mythical notions of the forest as a place of healing, safety, mystery and threat.”
We’re thrilled to world premiere the visually soothing video for “Eskil” from the new long-player. It’s exactly the sort of blissed-out, moody electronica we so desperately need right now.
