New Single Release
Late July marks the release of the second song from the new album from my Glass World, the band created by Jamie Telford and supported for this and the last album by producer and sax player Sean Read.
The track is called Step Right Up and you can listen on Spotify or YouTube
On 24 September My Glass World is releasing their latest album
Still Life With Machine Gun through Luxury Noise.
The band are Scottish songwriter Jamie Telford with accomplice Sean Read along with a host of friends.
Jamie wrote the songs and then recorded the album in lockdown with Sean in his Famous Times studio in Hackney.
Drums on the new album are by Stephen Gilchrist with Little Barrie on guitar and Jon Kensington on bass. The title, and some inspiration for the record itself, are drawn from an admiration of work by the American / Vietnamese poet and writer Ocean Vuong, in particular his book Night Sky With Exit Wounds. Of the new album Jamie says, “I was trying to write fresher more uptempo material. I’d exhausted some of the standard singer / songwriter tropes available to me previously as a predominantly solo piano player. For Still Life With Machine Gun, having a great bunch of musicians around me – and with time thanks to Lockdown – meant that with Sean’s help I could utilise them all to create a bigger sound.
The album’s title Still Life With Machine Gun hints at both the calm and chaos of modern life and is a rewarding and entertaining record that wears its virtuosity and confidence lightly. My Glass World are ambitious musicians who don’t forget to entertain.
