Like Dark To Light 'A Journey Too Far' is out on 21th February 2014. The fifth studio LP from Benedic Lamdin under his main Nostalgia 77moniker, this album finds the respected producer, composer, songwriter and guitarist further developing his creative partnership with rising German singer Josa Peit, whose rich, quirky lead vocals grace nine of the 11 tracks, with country-soul supremo Jeb Loy Nichols (Island) singing the remaining two in his loose and charismatic style. Having been previewed in a sold-out live three night live residency at London's Vortex in October, 'A Journey Too Far' was announced with a trailer video (on the Tru Thoughts YouTube now) which gives an enchanting window into the studio sessions, soundtracked by deep and bluesy album track "Backlash" for a first recorded taste of the new album. Also already out in the public domain is "An Angel With No Halo", the lead single which drops on 9th December. This stirring slice of psychedelic folk-noir reinforces the truly unique flavour of the record, complemented by a stunning Prince Fatty Dub remix which sees the Hollie Cook producer. With early radio support from the likes of Huey Morgan, John Kennedy and Jamie Cullum, an upfront stream has also been premiered by the tastemakers at Potholes In My Blog. Lamdin is constantly in demand as a producer and engineer. This year has seen him lending his production talents to Valerie June, Teotima, Lizbet Sempa, Jason Yarde, Gail Brand, Robert Stillman and Brass Mask, as well as a range of work with Jamie Cullum, a relationship that has evolved from the latter's longtime admiration and support for Nostalgia 77 on his BBC Radio 2 show. Having produced two tracks on 'Momentum' (Island), Cullum's current crossover LP featuring Roots Manuva, Lamdin has also recorded a complete album with the star, set for release in 2014. Gripping instrumentals, deft production and Josa Peit's intuitive vocals lend this album an irresistible, enigmatic pull, from the delightful bobbing and weaving intro of opener "What Do You Know" and throughout the ebb and flow of the record. Horn arrangements, which belie Nostalgia 77's jazz roots, add a strident quality to blues excursions like "Backlash" and "Your Love Weighs a Tonne", classic-sounding Jeb Loy Nichols number "Don't Run", and "Ramshackle Rose", seamlessly interplaying with delicate, acoustic guitar-led songs such as "Crescent City", the fresh-faced "One" and the delicate, dark lullaby "Like Dark To Light" which closes the album in a sense of beautiful suspense. Aside from her work in the Nostalgia 77 band, Josa Peit is a rising star of the German scene, with increasing international recognition and releases on Berlin techno/house collective Brandt Brauer Frick's The Gym label.
