The 'cover-artwork' for my new album 'Lost Property'.
Lost Property is a concept album, inspired by my discovery of an old abandoned house in the foothills of the Preseli Mountains in West Wales.
This image is a mixed-media work & an abstract interpretation of the property.
This image and 16 more (one for each track on the album) are available as part of the bonus items offered when purchasing the album on digital or CD format.
Here's the Press Release, which explains in more detail the concept & sound behind the album.
Following in the footsteps of his 2010 release Beautiful Isolation, Chris Weeks brings us his latest Kingbastard opus 'Lost Property'; a concept album which draws its inspiration from happening upon an old abandoned house whilst walking in the foothills of the Preseli Mountains, West Wales.
A more concise, but no less ambitious record than its predecessor, Lost Property primarily focuses inwardly on the house itself and its immediate surroundings. There are sixteen self-contained tracks, each meticulously depicting the different moods evoked upon discovery, exploration of, and departure from the property; however, each piece flows seamlessly into the next to form a picturesque, immersive and continuous soundscape, where fragile field-recordings, subtle spoken-word, and harmonious vocals rub shoulders with dusty micro-glitched grooves, retro synths, rich sub-bass, lo-fi landscapes and warped guitars; underscored with evolving, ethereal ambience.
Lost Property is the sound of Weeks' creative imagination in full flow; immediately enveloping the listener and never relenting, tracks segue effortlessly, unveiling a unique, genre-defying collage of beautifully crafted, descriptive sonic textures that honestly encapsulate the artist's experience and emotions.
