Having travelled to West Heath Yard in 2012 to work with Edwyn Collins and Sebastian Lewsley on Bleached Highlights, Joe decided this time he needed a rural approach and it quickly became apparent that it would be easier to make a new record at home in Argyll with the _LINDEN live band; Stuart Kidd, Eric Lindsay and Marco Rea. Joe built a makeshift studio in an old fisherman's croft on the shores of Loch Fyne, threw some logs on the fire and set about recording Rest and be Thankful which he then sent to Edwyn and Seb via courier pigeon to mix at WHY in London. The boys reckon you can hear Argyll in the music, you can feel where Joe lives… a sonic snapshot of rural life.
Musically, the album is a beautifully played mix of soulful Americana-influences and a sun-kissed, effortless set of harmonies and melodies that wouldn't have gone amiss on a Teenage Fanclub record. A breath of fresh rural air.
