Well apparently it’s the time of year for reflection. British indie label Phantom Planet have named Gareth Dickson’s “Collected Recordings” in their list of the 50 Best albums of 2009. I know we’re supposed to be all “gosh” and humble, but sod that “we agree!”. It’s one hell of a disc. One that I think we’ll keep coming back to year after year.
6. Collected Recordings | Gareth Dickson (Drifting Falling)
An over-looked gem of a record where Labradford meets Nick Drake in one of the most dream-like of recordings in 2009. Glasgow-based Dickson is a master craftsman and his songs are simply sublime.
