The debut album from Bristol based guitarist/songwriter James McKeown.
James McKeown is the guitarist in Bristol based luminaries Hi-Fiction Science. Whilst their music is based around a unique blend of Krautrock, Folk, Post-Punk and Electronic influences, James' debut album is an introspective journey into quintessentially English lo-fi melancholic dreampop.
For optimum listening results consume late at night or on a wet Sunday afternoon through high quality headphones.
Venue Magazine - January 2011
• Shoegaze – despite years of lithium addiction and inoperable bad hair – is thriving in Bristol. Certainly judging by this debut solo album from Hi-Fiction Science guitarist McKeown, anyway. Sadness, jangle and ghostly multi-tracked vocals reign majestically across these nine tracks – from opening cut ‘From NASA To None’, which recalls a lower-fi, less droned-up Jesus & Mary Chain, and the Flaming Lips-y ‘Poacher’s Feet’ to soft and sinister murder ballad ‘Bones’ (“Of all the girls that went missing that year/Didn’t think that you would be missed”) that nods to Elliott Smith and Jose Gonzalez, it’s all pleasingly narcotic. If you like Curve and Swervedriver and getting caught in the rain, this could be the fella to see you through the rest of the winter. (Anna Britten)
