ABOUT THIS RELEASE
Release Date: October 2nd, 2020
Earplay, first released on Big Chill Recordings in 2008, was the first full-length album by Sheffield-based ambient electronica duo Animat.
Featuring tracks composed for Animat’s acclaimed live soundtrack to David Lynch’s film The Straight Story, Earplay is awash in treated guitars, found voices, flutes, trumpet and melodica, all combined with a rich mix of lush chords, electronic beats and loops, plus stunning contributions from guest vocalists Lisa Palmer and Sanchita Farruque, best known for her collaborations with Nitin Sawhney.
The 2020 digital reissue has been lovingly remastered and is accompanied by ‘Earplayed’, a selection of edits and remixes of tracks from the original, including a brand new Animat lockdown rework of the album opener Hummingbird Highway.
