Graeme Dutton This is great stuff Adam, always able to do something a bit different, lots of influences amalgamated into a great big melting pot. Favorite track: Robot Escape Bid.

about

OCTOPUS - 8 releases over 8 consecutive months, each containing 8 tracks. Releases begin 08/08 (2014).

'Octopus' is an audio retrospective of Adam Leonard's recorded work over the last decade, under his own name, pseudonyms, side-projects and collaborations, bringing together music from sold-out limited edition releases, album outtakes, demos, live versions, soundtrack work, BBC sessions and cover versions. All eight 'tentacles' features previously unreleased material. Stylistically impossible to pin down 'Octopus' issues forth Ivor Cutler-style harmonium dirges, acoustic guitar/vocal visions, pulsing analogue electronics, laptop prog, spooky instrumentals, glassy-eyed drones, piano torch songs and ... more.

about

Adam Leonard Londonderry, UK

"He's unfairly adept at all of these styles, and defies both logic, and conventional form in his ability to construct a convincing, detailed tapestry from materials which should result in a patchwork outcome at best" - Nathan Ford, The Active Listener
