Andrew Wasylyk

Themes For Buildings And Spaces

Tape Club Records

Released: 22nd December 2017

This is so gorgeous. Andrew Wasylyk, the alias of Scottish writer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, Andrew Mitchell, invites the listener to explore his hometown of Dundee. Eight architectural sites and open spaces have inspired an album of instrumental compositions echoing the materials, the everyday use and the romanticised memories of a post-war cityscape continually shifting and evolving throughout the decades. The result is both magical and realist - music that’s both evocative and purposeful. Without wishing to over-burden Wasylyk with comparisons, we do think it’s fair to say that fans of Broadcast, Bill Wells and John Barry will find something to delight in this record which is currently on constant repeat.
