Northern Irish born, Glasgow based musician, Gary Caruth has been steadily building a successful oeuvre of releases from his 2011 debut ‘Gestures’ EP to appearing on Emotional Response’s ‘Schleißen’ series last Spring. July 29 sees the release of his debut album ‘Shapes In Formation’ on Emotional Response and Meda Fury. Coming together across 10 tracks but very much recorded as one listening experience, ‘Shapes In Formation’ mixes his love of field recordings with deep ambient soundscapes atop incessant percussive loops. Halfway through this journey is the rolling jazz of ‘Steady Jam’. A delicate balance of restrained drum fills, hissing hats and gospel vocal bliss.
