Stockholm-based Shida’s ‘Homes’ LP was released on FatCat’s pioneering 130701 imprint in October 2018, with its gentle yet deeply immersive, homespun piano drawing comparisons to the likes of Goldmund and Nils Frahm. It was championed by BBC’s Mary Anne Hobbs and Gilles Peterson, whilst MOJO marvelled at her “summoning music from the very bowels of the piano, the out-of-focus opacity; like her simple, affecting melodic gures, suggesting... a half-sub- merged music that rewards the attentive ear”. Elsewhere, Future Music called the album “a masterclass in simplicity... allowing each note the space and time to become truly affecting... a con dent debut of a new artist with their own vision”. Released without huge fanfare or big industry / marketing machinery, ‘Homes’ nevertheless found a strong, organic connection with an audience, being picked up and shared across social media and through word of mouth, and viewed by many as one of last year’s nest piano albums.
