Julie Tippets & Martin Archer - Ghosts of Gold
(Discus Music Discus37CD)
From Aural Innovations April 2010 update
Martin Archer is an experimental musician creating some pretty damn cool stuff. Here he is teamed up with Julie Tippets, who creates a special universe with her spoken word poetry and stories, which when combined with Martin’s musical world expand into a new universe. This is very special stuff and my daughter thought it was very strange. Julie also adds some xylophone, shakers, and thumb piano on selected tracks but mostly the music is Martin using a huge array of instruments to create the themes for the words. The 3 gatefold digipack also nicely displays all the words.
