The album was largely recorded on a farm in Worcestershire and for the first time the group worked with an outside producer, Drew Morgan, bringing together what has now become their most coherent record to date. Complete creative control is ensured with the group releasing the album on Shape Records, run by Mark Thomas of the group.
The first taster of which is ‘This Fortune’ available for free from here: http://tinyurl.com/Islet-ThisFortune
It’s live where Islet have thus far built their reputation, sometimes with ritualistic chants delivered offstage; meandering off into the crowd, percussive breakdowns, always with tumult and joy. In person as in their music, they seek to break down walls. Expect the unexpected when they tour this November:
11 – MANCHESTER, Deaf Institute
12 – LEEDS, Constellations Festival
13 – NOTTINGHAM, Bodega
14 – NORWICH, Arts Centre
15 – BRIGHTON, Green Door Store
16 – LONDON, Lexington
17 – CAMBRIDGE, Portland Arms
19 – HAGUE, Crossing Borders Fest, The Netherlands
20 – ANTWERP, Crossing Borders Fest, Belgium
23 – CARDIFF, Buffalo
Also available, on tour only, will be a 12″ of This Fortune, featuring a vinyl only 15 minute sound collage made by the group; a swirling mass of found sounds, fragmented thoughts and previously unheard tracks.
