Rick Redbeard - Awake Unto
Quarried from similar stone to that of Michael Hurley, Leonard Cohen and Bill Callahan and wrapped in layers redolent of Angelo Badalamenti, ‘Awake Unto’ weaves folk, balladry and filmic impulses into a tapestry of song so deftly detailed the rewards multiply with every listen.
Following in the wake of two Phantom Band albums - ‘Strange Friend’ (2014) and ‘Fears Trending’ (2015) and the music Anthony wrote for Theresa Moerman’s New Talent BAFTA-winning documentary ‘The Third Dad’, it’s hardly surprising ‘Awake Unto’ marks an assured shift in scope, colour and tone from its spartan forerunner.
Rick: “If ‘No Selfish Heart’ was a tasteful black and white pencil sketch, ‘Awake Unto’ gets the crayons out to colour it in.” He’s too modest by half of course, as even the most cursory listen will demonstrate. ‘Awake Unto’ takes the core elements of Rick’s debut - his towering, mahoganied voice and melodic imagination - and cloaks them in fabrics and hues, elevating them to giddying new heights in the process.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
