Sunbathing Through a Glass Screen

Mixed by Joel Ford
Features double bass contributions by George Cremaschi of the Prague Improvisation Orchestra

"Theo Alexander's fifth long-player is about 'excess in a time of crisis', so for all the melancholy that pervades the Londoner's neoclassical timbres, 'Sunbathing Through a Glass Screen' dumps a welcome load of fury onto the genre. Red hot it is, too. [...] Alexander creates drama and poignancy using very little ammo - a piano, a tape loop, cello swipes and a throb of double bass. 'Bright-Eyed Hunger', a Reichian spin on Joe Hisaishi's soundtrack for 1993 yakuza film 'Sonatine' is a case in point."
