Now available today for the first time is lead-off track 'Young Brothers' from guitarist Chris Sharkey's Presets.
A startling sound, elegiac in a raw jagged style that is very heart on sleeve without any maudlin sentimentality to it 'Young Brothers' is a ballad, halting and deliberating, for the 21st century but no throwback given the methods and sounds it employs. Leeds-based Sharkey, who hails from the north east of England, is best known for his work with Acoustic Ladyland and TrioVD. He also arranged WorldService Project's For King and Country. The 11-track album, solely electric guitar and hardware, was recorded to one stereo track with no additional processing post-performance. The complete track listing is: 'Blue Cloud, Red Fog'; 'The Sharecropper’s Daughter'; 'Faloodeh With Flake'; 'Evangelist (Salvation History)'; 'Detained At The Border'; 'Blowup'; 'Young Brothers'; 'Torpid Metacarpals'; 'Watt, Law and Order'; 'Puget Sound Backlash'; 'Scorpion Bow'. Album release date is 25 June. Link to get the track
