‘Nuits Sonores’ is the A-Side from Sam Shepherd’s 12″ due out at the start of next month.
A follow up to this year’s excellent ‘King Bromeliad/Montparnasse’, Sam Shepherds will finish off 2014 with another two track offering on Eglo in the shape of ‘Nuits Sonores/Nectarines’. Out on Eglo, fans can get their hands on a digital copy from 8th December, with the vinyl dropping on the 20th.
So Shepherd has have uploaded the full stream of ‘Nuit Sonores’ – which shares its name with the respected annual festival held in Lyon, France. Clocking in at just under 12 minutes, ‘Nuits Sonores’ is very much in the progressive and considered vein as ‘Montparnasse’ – with softly pulsing chords accompanied by some tasteful Rhodes noodling and some trademark wistful guitar licks. Bubbling lead lines then veer between celestially serene and acidic as Shepherd lays out another mini-masterpiece of melody and dynamics.
‘Nuits Sonores/Nectarines’ is out digitally on Eglo 8th December, with vinyl to follow 20th December. You can pre-order it here.
