Neu York Songs
'Neu York' is the world-class secrete by Anthony Reynolds following the end of his world-class band 'Jack'. This album was recorded in an intensely casual manner over the last year in Paris, New York and London but was made primarily in Anthony's study, at his home in the English countryside, near the Welsh Border.
This domestic set up is reflected in the sound of some of the quieter pieces; You can hear Anthony's cats, the birds outside the window, the sound of washing up and phones ringing, chairs creaking, bottles crashing..
The album contains 14 emotional, cleverly scripted tracks -- many of which are genre-crossing from 60s chamber pop to 80s neu wave.
The album also features cameo appearances by Ex Jack members Julian Simmons and Fiona Brice (https://www.tradebit.com) as well as Divine Comedy members, Bryan Mills and Ivor Talbot.
The French film composer Franck Roussel co-wrote/performed/ produced one of the songs. If you listen closely you can hear contributions from Momus (Nick Currie) as well.
