FILE UNDER: Krautrock, Electronic, New-Wave. TOWERS is the second album from BALTIC FLEET and follows his 2008 self-titled debut which was an Album of the Year (No 29) for Rough Trade Shops who described it as A faultless piece of instrumental music that captures the spirit of Eno, NEU! all the way through to modern post-rock and chamber music BALTIC FLEET is the moniker of multi-instrumentalist and DIY producer Paul Fleming. The second record signifies a departure from the travelling and diarising of life on the road (whilst touring as keyboard player for Echo & The Bunnymen), and arrives home to the industrial backdrop of North West England. The album was written and recorded in a room overlooking the industrial landscape a stone s throw from Spike Island, the scene of another Northern band s finest hour. The cinematic aspect is still apparent on this second offering but is more direct. Analogue synthesizers intertwined with distant guitars roll over a backdrop of live and electronic drums. Two years in the making, the record captures varied emotions. Towers tells a story of life in between the silos of Liverpool and Manchester but with a foot in both, a cultural no-man s land, in the shadows of industry. Immense Rough Trade Shops // Something special indeed. Outstanding evocative, expansive and ambitious Crack New Bands // Exceptional motorik beats NME Buzz // A wonderfully well rounded and complete album Louder Than War
