Track of the Day: 'Amphis' by Luke Abbott

Strap yourselves in, this is one hell of a trip. Taken from Abbott's forthcoming album 'Wysing Forest', this 12-minute piece feels like the soundtrack to one of those documentaries that explain how life first emerged from the sea and took to the land. Ambitious in scale but never bombastic, it's a really absorbing track. The album it comes from is out in June on Border Community Records, and is essentially a 52 minute piece built up from a series of live improvisations he created while artist in residence at Wysing Arts Centre in Cambridgeshire. Based on this it looks like being an essential purchase!
