''THE NEXT ONE" - is it balearic?
Cheekily entitled Le Suivant ("The Next One" in English),
the album sees the duo come together to work their
collaborative magic in the studio yet again, with a few new
people drafted in the help out.Robin Lee even lends his cello skills
to the record, whilst the usual cast of friends and session musicians
have fleshed out he tracks with all sorts of instrumentation.
As with their previous work, Le Suivant sees the duo venture
away from their more dancefloor-oriented material
to create a lush summer soundtrack, mixing influences from folk,
jazz, disco and even Indian music.
As with most of the vinyl releases on Mudd's Claremont 56 imprint,
the LP version of Smith & Mudd will be limited to just 500 copies,
so wax addicts should act quickly if they fancy a slice of sunkissed
melodicism to sup their cocktails to over the summer months.
Claremont 56's released Le Suivant on June 1st, 2009.
