Yorkston/Thorne/Khan return to Summerhall’s Dissection Room with their new album Neuk Wight Delhi. It follows the band’s debut album, 2016’s critically acclaimed Everything Sacred, and presents a confluence of currents, among them the north Indian sarangi; jazz-tinged bass, reminiscent in places of Danny Thompson; acoustic guitar that owes a debt to Elizabeth Cotton, Dick Gaughan and Mississippi John Hurt; and three very different vocalists – James Yorkston (East Neuk of Fife), Jon Thorne (Isle of Wight) and Suhail Yusuf Khan (New Delhi).
Norwegian artist and writer Jenny Hval has developed her distinct take on intimate sound. She has received thoughtful and widespread international acclaim for her fascinating voice, singular delivery and markedly non-traditional arrangements which incorporate elements of poetry, prose writing, performance art, and film.
The best band in the whole damned land (and Texas is the reason), they kissed the sublime, and splintered apart in the process. Their arc, however, isn’t yet complete – see them together once again in The Dissection Room.
