The Elf of Elbrook Court releases a new album, ‘The Glass Typewriter’.
The long-player was concocted between March and July 2020 – comprising songs written, according to Craig Spence, “watching the sunset, tales of far off lands and a broken-down state of mind.”
Containing a dozen ‘lockdown’ tracks, the release follows an EP, entitled ‘Down the River‘, from July.
That record, like ‘The Glass Typewriter’, saw the Gourock-based songwriter move away from his usual indie and electronic sounds and back towards the country music of his youth.
“I was brought up on a diet of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Crystal Gayle, Dolly Parton, John Denver,” Spence recalls. “Occasionally my indie electronic leanings flash and beep through,” he adds, recalling his more electronic-oriented album ‘The Elf of Elbrook Court’, released around a year ago, “but on the whole this is an album of country guitars and western stories.”
