New Roots presents Robin Elliott ‘There Is A Land‘ Album Launch, full band show with support from Men Daimler & Dilettante.
Robin Elliott’s full-length debut album, There is a Land, will be released across digital platforms and 12” vinyl, and launched with a full band show at The Slaughtered Lamb on Saturday 9th November. Co-produced by longtime collaborator and Radio 2 Folk Award Winner Ben Walker (Folkroom Records), the album weaves diverse strands of influence into a compelling, coherent whole. Its 10 songs are each utterly different but are united by Robin’s compelling bespoke arrangements for the same small palette of instruments each time. At the centre is Elliott’s voice: beautiful, strange and distinctive, equally adept at the high and plaintive as the declamatory or the dry. And there are jokes, odd references, intricate vocal harmonies, jazz players, weird skips beyond the fourth wall.
There are hints of all this across Robin’s three previous releases, the EPs At Sunset and Green Ginger Wine (Textbook Records), and Weapons Antique & Modern (Folkroom Records). Live shows have taken him around the UK several times with contemporaries Jack Harris, Samantha Whates and Cameron Niven, and further afield into France, Italy and Brazil. The Weapons… EP is compiled from Robin’s early work as songwriter-for-hire, including from the award-winning documentary feature film A Very British Gangster.
Support on the evening comes from alt-folk provocateur Men Daimler and solo artist Dilettante.
