Kitchens Of Distinction - Folly
Release Date: 14/10/2013
“I can listen to a British Sea Power record and think: ‘You know what? Kitchens Of Distinction were ahead of their time.’” STEVE LAMACQ / BBC RADIO / 2013
Kitchens Of Distinction return with a brand new studio album, Folly, their fifth album and the first for 19 years.
In Summer 2011 Patrick Fitzgerald asked Julian Swales whether he would like to work on some new songs together. With the constraints of distance, day jobs and family duties taken into account, things slowly started to come together. Dan Goodwin was invited to join in the fun and eventually ten songs loomed out of the mist. Ten new songs that sound not as a pastiche of a band 20 years on but, as Julian puts it, are “like a new version sucked through time and space.”
The songs were recorded in Patrick’s studio in Derbyshire and at Julian’s studio in Brighton. The songs were mixed with Pascal Gabriel (Kylie, Goldfrapp, Inspiral Carpets, Ladyhawke) in April 2013.
