:: Amazing album!
Following three EP’s released in 2012 and 2013, London-based troubadour, model and singer/songwriter Roo Panes has finally released his debut album Little Giant and it’s as wonderful as all his previous releases.
The album is streaming in its entirety over at Spotify – I strongly suggest you take a full listen since it’s a stunning beauty. Little Giant was recorded by Roo Panes at his Wimborne (Dorset) home together with producer Rupert Coulson (Portishead, Oasis).
In a label press release, Panes explained that he and his band captured the 12-string guitar sounds, percussions and strings of Little Giant in “the music room, down at our house – just a small, wooden-floored room. I thought, why not keep the recording close to where I write the songs? […] I’m a really big fan of the idea that you don’t need all the stuff you find in a big studio – it’s about how you use the things you do have. Rupert had a lot of imagination, and got a good grasp of the room and harnessed it. I love working in places that have an atmosphere, and I think it’s good to have that extra, background noise on a record. I’m sure there’s an ambulance on the album, actually.”
