King Creosote – Blue Marbled Elm Trees

The album I Des, a songwriting masterclass by King Creosote was my favourite album of 2023. An exceptional set of tunes, heartfelt, quirky, sometimes a bit mad and totally uplifting.

I can’t really pick out a favourite track from the album, all the songs are quite different and yet they fit together like a magical, harmonious painting. I’ve picked Blue Marbled Elm Trees but I could have chosen any of them really, with the possible exception of the 36 minute Drone in B#; slightly miffed that one wasn’t able to fit on the vinyl…..

Can’t stop listening to this record, it’s a true work of art.
