Recommended: Hampshire & Foat - Saint Lawrence

22 March 2019

I've been hooked on Hampshire & Foat material since I first stumbled across the debut album 'Galaxies Like Grains Of Sands' on Athens Of The North. Hampshire & Foat are otherwise known as Warren Hampshire who is part of the group The Bees and Greg Foat, who you may know from The Greg Foat Group. I have to confess to not knowing their previous works, it was down to following the label that I came across them, and I'm glad I did.

This, as the previous releases takes in influence from ambient, jazz and folk genres which makes for a lovely combination. This LP was recorded live in two churches on the Isle Of Wight with the tracks named after local landmarks. Have a listen, if vinyl is your thing, don't sleep on it. There are only 500 pressed and no represses.
