'tensionseeka (Chris Stewart/Need More Sources)
I see Chris on almost a weekly basis and each time I enquire when he will next have something for release. The answer is almost uniformly the same,
“Ah man! I’m working on it. I have all these sketches but nothings finished.”
My reply in this little ritual is “ Just mix them together, I’m sure there ace”.
Imagine my surprise when Chris threw a curve ball this week by telling me he had launched a Kickstarter campaign as a way of forcing his own hand to complete an album. This will be his first since the beautiful 2010 Need More Sources album ‘Seo-ri’. Working under the moniker of ‘tensionseeka the proposed album ‘The Abyss Blinked First’ promises to be Chris’ most personal recording to date. I must confess that I have heard a work in progress snippet, which was truly stunning and makes me eager to hear the whole finished piece. For anyone who has enjoyed Chris’ past work then please help him out here:
As always, kind regards
P.S. here is a mix of unreleased Need More Sources sketches for those who may have missed it! http://www.mixcloud.com/FluidRadio/need-more-sources-the-grand-scheme-of-things/
