Roddy Woomble - Lo! Soul
'Lo! Soul' is the fifth solo album from Roddy Woomble, following on from his acclaimed debut, 'My Secret Is My Silence' (2006), 'The Impossible Song & Other Songs' (2011), 'Listen To Keep' (2013) and 'The Deluder' (2017).
+ Indie LP is eco mix vinyl.
The record sees Woomble continue his unique and restless trajectory, gently stepping away from his previous acoustic/folk intentions in favour of a more explorative light, prevalent on 2020's 'Everyday Sun' EP, which featured largely spoken word pieces over an ambient, mediative soundtrack.
Produced and mixed by collaborator and Idlewild bandmate Andrew Mitchell (aka Andrew Wasylyk), 'Lo! Soul' was recorded remotely between Roddy's home in the Hebrides and Andrew's studio in Dundee throughout 2020 while Scotland was locked-down.
Roddy explains: "Andrew describes moments of the album as 'Dystopian-pop' which I think is as good a description as any. Lockdown gave me the sense of a collective melancholy, a shared remoteness and isolation - that has been a guiding influence throughout all the songs. It is the most unusual record I have made, and made in the most unusual way."
Across his twenty-five year career, 'Lo! Soul' may well be Woomble's most inventive, creative album to date. From undulating synths and ambient soundscapes in the abstract narratives of 'Atlantic Photography' and 'Secret Show', the sun-tinged horns of 'Architecture in LA', a mellifluous Mellotron or perhaps a piano chime. Here, the path is embedded with Roddy's words delicately unearthing the known and never known.

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.
