the dovetail consort – east and west ep

The Dovetail Consort is Tim Newman’s acoustic project. The debut EP is released by superb Irish avant folk label Rusted Rail. As hinted by the title, the EP combines both eastern and western instrumentation and tonalities. “I recorded these tracks by playing a knot of lead parts over a repeating rhythm. The structure owes more to the stripping away of parts than the creating of them, like a sculptor creating by chipping away at material instead of adding to it.” This 3 inch hand stamped EP is housed in a handmade sleeve.
