Gavin Laird releases his debut solo album, ‘Instance’, on CD via the Temperate Man label, and on the Glass Miniature label – the digital download only division of Glass Records Redux.
Laird, formerly of Telstar Ponies, Macrocosmica, Lonecop, and The Porch Song Anthology,
recorded the 14 tracks at his home in Glasgow in the winter of 2016, via a single microphone.
The home sessions resulted in over five hours of improvised instrumental acoustic guitar, synth and piano, which were whittled down to closer to 45 minutes of muic.
Largely a solo work, the album also features Joel Derby (Make Flames), who contributed to the track ‘Lewis and the Great Astral Library’.
