Scott Gilmore – Another Day (International Feel)
Having recently completed a live tour across Europe, Scott Gilmore returns to International Feel with Another Day. Following on from his “mini-masterpiece” last Summer, the LA musician confidently delivers four new records.
The uplifting Electric Gestures is the first of the four dreamy soundscapes. Setting the tone, it drifts through with tight yet subtle percussion. A melancholic twist ensues with the melodic string number Things Forgotten. Next up, Lately follows suit blending emotive keys with thoughtful strings, which lead onto the hopeful and hypnotic chords of Another Day.
“Before recording the songs for ‘Another Day’ I had never worked on music with the knowledge that it would be released. Both ‘Volume 01’ and ‘Subtle Vertigo’ were made in a state of aloneness, and there is a comfort in that state of mind because it is easier to work freely without any inhibitions. Making music that I knew would be heard by others was a process of putting that out of my mind, and a process of remembering that the most important part of creating music is to explore.” – Scott Gilmore
Sitting comfortably in Mark Barrott’s International Feel, Gilmore studied the guitar for eighteen years and his compositions demonstrate a real master at work. Combining elements of 70’s underground psychedelia, kosmische, and library music his music “has the distinct air of something you might find in a dusty corner of someone’s garage” (Pitchfork).
