Sometimes words are not enough. Sometimes you just have to listen, let the music catch you and carry you with it. Sometimes the music is everything. Catching Sunlight has everything. Pianist and composer Dave Stapleton’s new album Catching Sunlight is filled with gorgeous melodies, drenched in sensual harmonies and driven by subtle, shifting rhythms and strange, exotic time signatures. New Music group, the Lunar Saxophone Quartet, commissioned Stapleton to write a long work in 2007 for four saxophones and piano.
"From A Room: Volume 1" is the forthcoming sophomore studio album from American Country musician Chris Stapleton, slated to be released on May 5th, 2017 by Mercury Records Nashville & Universal Music. Volume 2 is going to be released later this year.
Often referred to as the French Faust, FQM's album mixed collage, psychedelic rock, surreal poetry, and organically tapped noise purity with the absolute best of experimental 70s rock-and-beyond. Trixie Stapleton 291 is packed with ideas and little follies: you cannot find much actual music in it, but many of its solutions remind Faust and anticipate some of the Residents' best work. Sound collages, cut ups, short crazed piano pieces (sounding like Chopin on speed), white noises cranking up the stereo, all of these studio trickeries manage to create a mysterious, shadowy, ever shifting soundscape. The final effect is paradoxically much more in a proto wave vein than in a progressive one.
Flight is the new album by Dave Stapleton, his most ambitious and finest record to date. Many artists have their ambitions but rarely are these fulfilled with such artistry and beauty. Flight marks Stapleton’s seventh release and he has chosen to use the opportunity to produce a record that reaches far beyond easy categorisation. Already recognised as a writer of beautiful, lyrical tunes, Flight marks a giant leap forward and establishes him as one of the most ambitious composers in jazz.
