James Brookes AKA Land Observations returns to Mute Records with his second offering for the imprint entitled The Grand Tour. The album acts as an imaginary auditory travelogue of the traditional route from England to Italy via France, Belgium and Austria. Recorded using only a six-string electric guitar and a range of vintage recording equipment, The Grand Tour glows with a rich analogue warmth, no more so than on the opening piece ‘On Leaving The Kingdom For The Well-Tempered Continent’ that seeps with the kind of optimism and excitement regularly encountered before embarking on an adventure.
