Julia Kent - First track from new album

Julia Kent released a beautiful album a couple of years ago, Green and grey on Tin Angel Records, which was the first time I came across her. Now she's switched to Leaf and her new album Character comes out in March.

She's a solo cellist and that's essentially what her music consists of, layers of cello parts laid over each other. The last album featured field recordings as well for added (beautiful) texture, but from an initial listen to the new one, it seems to focus more on melody.

I'll have more on the album once I've listened through properly but for now you can get a track from it for free, Tourbillon. It's got several swinging cello parts intertwined, with a tugging minor key melody on top and it builds brilliantly with a great air of purpose.
