An Ambassador For Laing is the debut album by Dalhous.
Arriving in the wake of their recent 10", Mitchell Heisman, it's due to be released by Blackest Ever Black in April 2013.
The Edinburgh-based duo of Marc Dall and Alex Ander work with intricately stacked percussion, dubwise bass and a rich harmonic tapestry of processed voices, keys, harp, vibraphone, guitar, woodwind, strings and synthesiser - every sound re-sampled to the nth degree then subjected to subtle automation and rigorously fine-tuned over a period of many months. From the mesmerised pastoral drift of 'Anger Sees Red' and 'Dwelling By The Meadow' to agitated arabesques like 'The Physical Body' and the self-titled 'Dalhous', the resulting pieces explore dreamlike but treacherous terrain. Eleven questions in a world of blue.
The album will be available on CD, digital and vinyl LP formats; the LP package will include a free download coupon.
