Beautiful collaborative work from Monorail favourite Alasdair Roberts and James Green. Featuring the vocals of Alasdair Roberts and instrumentation and production of James Green, Plaint Of Lapwing is a stunning, cohesive work that combines subtle melodic flourishes and more traditional instrumentation, including a harmoniflute, a rare instrument between a harmonium and accordion. Built around disembodied recordings made by Roberts, recorded partly during his sessions for A Wonder Working Stone, Green manages to present Roberts' evolving vision within new frameworks and harmonic possibilities. A must for any fan of either artists' work and a great addition to the Clay Pipe roster
