I had never heard of A Liquid Landscape before running into them when they supported Crippled Black Phoenix at the Liquid Rooms a couple of weeks ago. My first impression was ‘great name’. And they didn’t disappoint with their emotive live sound either.
Now that I’ve had time to digest their ‘Nightingale Express’ album, I have to say that I’ve really fallen for them. It’s a beautiful collection of songs that take you on a journey of discovery, hope and longing. This is not an itunes/ipod shuffle album people, and requires listening to in its entirety for the full experience. You’ll soon find yourself pressing repeat at the end…
The band have even been good enough to collaborate with film maker Lex Vesseur to produce a short film which captures the very essence of their sound and concept. You can view it here.
I’m hopeful that they will make it back to these shores again in the not too distant future. Now that I know the music, I would love the chance to hear it live again and I will let everyone know if/when that happens. Until then, please feel free to do some Facebook liking and purchasing of a physical/download copy of the album obviously.
Good bands like this deserve your support…
