This is UK-based Alexander Tucker's second release for ATP Recordings. Tucker began as a vocalist in post-rock hardcore five piece Unhome. In late 1999, Tucker went on to tour with Detroit space rockers Fuxa. Simultaneously, Tucker had been developing his interest in improvisation using detuned guitars, tape loops, mini-disc players and FX pedals. In early 2000, Tucker recorded a solo self-titled album of acoustic finger-picking, experimental electronics, field recordings and spooked vocals, which was picked up by Tom Greenwood of Jackie-O-Motherfucker and released under his U-Sound Archives label. Tucker's ability to combine compositional song structures, drones, layered vocals and improvisations culminated on his 2005 album Old Fog, a collection of spectral moods, eerie landscapes and fragile emotions. His commanding live performance has led to collaborations which include working with Stephen O'Malley (SunnO))), Khanate) on his Ginnungagap side project, providing the soundtrack to Lali Chetwynd's performance piece at Tate Britain and playing as a part of JOMF, Duke Garwood, and Little Wet Horse. Furrowed Brow was recorded in his home county of deepest darkest Kent. For this new recording, Tucker has combined harmonized vocal patterns, layered instrumentation and heavy sonic bliss riffs to create a cross between David Crosby, doom metal and Terry Riley. Alexander Tucker is also a visual artist, creating artwork for all of his album covers and side projects, including ongoing drawings and comic artwork for Sturgeon White Moss (White Moss Press) and the new cover for Nordic doom-master Wolfmangler.
