This new self-titled album marks a turning point in the extensive discography of Glasgow-based multi-instrumentalist and artist Alec Cheer. Gone are the electronics and effects of earlier works. Leaving finally nothing but clear space for the acoustic guitar to weave and chime.
Described enthusiastically by The Wire magazine as “melodic neo-folk” and garnering favourable comparisons to the likes of Fahey and Chapman, Alec Cheer here offers a collection of delicate and pastoral pieces sculpted over years of performance and recorded and mixed in full professional studio fidelity over 2 years by Andreas Jönsson (Moon Unit, Lanterns). Finally stripped back to raw melody and colourful clarity, this is the album Cheer’s followers have long anticipated.
