Andy Cartwright’s Seabuckthorn project has covered a lot of ground in its 10+ run, but there’s always a liminal feeling to it that I’m helplessly drawn to. Cartwright has an innate feel for otherworldly melodies and a remarkable ability to condense expansive ideas into concise aural structures. His new solo album, Form Less Ness, blooms in similar spaces while bringing an air vulnerability into its expressive glances.
Cartwright’s mix, Music For Being Led Astray (and other ways to depart), covers a lot of ground in an hour. He assembles it in such a way that familiar songs take on new forms and unknown expressions become intimate connections. It’s fantastic.
Andy Cartwright’s Form Less Ness comes out tomorrow via A Quiet Room. It would be a fantastic addition to your Bandcamp Day cart.
