The Route To The Harmonium (Limited Edition Green LP)
Produced by Yorkston and David Wrench, it is James' first solo record since 2014's Cellardyke Recording and Wassailing Society (CRAWS) and follows the two collaborative albums he made as one third of Yorkston/Thorne/Khan as well as the release of his debut novel Three Craws in 2016.
The Route to the Harmonium (or, 'a route to finding harmony') is intensely personal. Listen closely and you can imagine him piecing it together. Overlaying vocal and guitar tracks. Friends and family, past and present, those that have remained and those who have left - they swim all over his songs.
