Memory Drawings are an Anglo- American collective featuring members of Hood (Domino Records) and Lanterns on the Lake (Bella Union). Led by the hammered dulcimer of Morrocco based American Joel Hanson, the group's debut album 'Music For Another Loss' (Second Language) featured collaborations with members of Rachel's and Piano Magic. Their new album 'There is No Perfect Place' is due for release on Hibernate Records in August and showcases Talk Talk like atmospherics, Angelo Badalamenti-influenced instrumentals and ethereal William Basinski style piano pieces.
"There is No Perfect Place" is the second full length album from Anglo-American chamber-folk outfit Memory Drawings. Led by the beguiling hammered dulcimer of Morocco-based American Joel Hanson, 'There Is No Perfect Place' features Richard Adams (Hood/The Declining Winter) and Sarah Kemp (Lanterns on the Lake) on guitars and violin respectively. The album showcases a wide palette of sounds delving into Talk Talk atmospherics ('There is A World Without You') uplifting ethnic tinged pop ('Then and Now'), kraut driven experiments ('The Island of The Day Before') alongside Basinski - style piano pieces ('In the House at Midnight") and glistening examples of the kind of Badalamenti influenced instrumentals that littered their debut ('Golden Afternoon', 'There is No Perfect Place')
