What: Becalmed by Sophie Hutchings.
When: August 14 through Sydney indie Preservation.
Key notes: Debut album from Sydney-based pianist Hutchings. Produced in two settings: with engineer Tim Whitten (The Necks) in Sydney and Tony Dupé (aka fellow Preservation artist Saddleback) in a home studio in Kangaroo Valley, NSW. Performers on the album include Hutchings’ brother Jamie, leader of longstanding Sydney outfit Bluebottle Kiss; and cellist Sophie Glasson, who has recorded with Sarah Blasko and The Church.
From the presser: “Sophie’s compositions move from disarmingly spare and elegant beginnings to curl out with a tingling edge, propelling its austerity into urgent and epic realms … The inspired measure of Becalmed is found in the space it inhabits between the meditative and evocative.”
