A few of you know by now, that I get a lot of inspiration from music. Well, last night I went to Glasgow to see King Creosote and Jon Hopkins perform their amazing album 'Diamond Mine'. From the onset, everything was perfect. Jon Hopkins, who wrote the sound track for 'Monsters' and also the intro to ColdPlay's X&Y album, added the perfect balance of audio 'ambience'.
I don't know how Creosote and Hopkins got together in the first place - the partnership seems on paper to be an unlikely one - one is a folk singer while the other creates moody and produces ambient music such as Eno's latest album..... well, the songs are very beautiful and this little video is good too.
