Richard James

The Seven Sleepers Den
VÖ: 23.11.2007
Label: My Kung Fu
Vertrieb: rough trade

My Kung Fu Recordings proudly announces the forthcoming release of Richard James’ debut album, The Seven Sleepers Den, on vinyl, digipack CD and download.

Bookended by snippets of cathedral ambience, The Seven Sleepers Den is a reverential listen the whole way through. Tir  Mor sets the tone sweetly, with James’ folky finger-picking, reverberating background harmonies and spacey zither. My Hearts On Fire’s poppy stroll, Wanna See You Die’s burnt-out stomp and Headlong’s melancholy chant round out an astonishing, handsome listen . Then the cathedral kicks in and it’s all over – like waking up in a daze.

In the UK, Uncut gave The Seven Sleepers Den 4 stars and Mojo said it was “a record that shines brilliantly”.

Richard James will be known to you as the guitarist in psychedelic Welsh wizards Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci which he co-founded with Euros Childs and other friends.

After achieving worldwide success over 8 albums of whim and wonder, Richard James decided to go solo. The stunning result, The Seven Sleepers Den, is a gorgeous mix of pastoral folk, frazzled hoe-downs and tender ballads that is winning him legions of new fans across the world.

Richard James is currently performing selected dates with his band around Europe.
