Music : New No-Man album - 'Schoolyard Ghosts' on DVD-Audio
 

A distinctive combination of beautifully detailed songwriting, haunting melodies and inventively cinematic production, Schoolyard Ghosts sees Tim and Steven expanding the band's sonic palette yet again by collaborating with (amongst others) Californian pedal steel guitar ace Bruce Kaphan (American Music Club, Red House Painters), drummers Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson, Mastica) and Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree, King Crimson), saxophonist/flautist Theo Travis, and the London Session Orchestra arranged by Dave Stewart (Hatfield & The North, Egg, Stewart & Gaskin etc).


Featuring the hypnotic Wherever There Is Light, the warped dynamism of Pigeon Drummer, the outsider lament of All Sweet Things and the subtly evolving explorations of the uplifting 13-minute semi-orchestral epic Truenorth, Schoolyard Ghosts represents the band's most consistent and mature work to date and looks set to build upon the success of predecessors Returning Jesus and Together We're Stranger.

The album was written and recorded between Autumn 2007 and Spring 2008 in No-Mans Land, Hemel Hempstead, UK; with additional recording in Norwich (UK), Lille (France), Vimmerby (Sweden), New York City, Austin and California (USA). Final orchestral sessions are being recorded in London in mid-March.

The full album tracklisting has been confirmed as follows:

  • All Sweet Things
  • Beautiful Songs You Should Know
  • Pigeon Drummer
  • Truenorth
  • Wherever There Is Light
  • Song Of The Surf
  • Streaming
  • Mixtaped

Further details on the album will follow closer to the release date. A promotional Schoolyard Ghosts microsite is scheduled for launch soon on the K-Scope homepage.
