On January 22nd (that’s a Sunday folks!) Kenny Anderson (aka King Creosote) will present an expanded performance of music from his new album, Astronaut Meets Appleman. It’s already been hailed as a career highlight and sees King Creosote mixing traditional Folk instrumentation with elements of Electronica. Astronaut Meets Appleman explores our relationship with technology, juxtaposing looping vocals and electronic ambience with the innocence of his daughter’s vocals and his characteristic mix of bagpipes and accordion.
As the album runs to just 9 tracks it seems a reasonable assumption that there’ll be a few other things as well. Admiral, Cowardly Custard, Not one bit ashamed would all be very acceptable your majesty.
Tickets are available now from The Barbican in the range £15-£22.50.
