Arthur Russell - Instrumentals A

Before anything, a very happy new year to all! Over on the Facebook page I posted a round up of Dig That Treasure's first few months. Let's hope 2014 provides much of the same!

Starting the new year is Arthur Russell, a favourite of mine and an inspiration on this blog. Russell is a rare kind of musician whose sound feels completely natural no matter what style, era or scene he's exploring. This piece, Instrumentals A, is a pastoral stroll; it feels natural, spiritual and inexplicably up-lifting. Here, Russell embraces the avant-garde, classical music and jazz while remaining accessible and universal. It's this period of his work that seems to have inspired musicians like Julian Lynch, Sandro Perri and Jens Lekman.
