Bill Ryder-Jones West Kirby County Primary on 180g LP + 7" + Download
Domino is pleased to announce the release of West Kirby County Primary, the third full-length album from multi-instrumentalist, producer and composer, Bill Ryder-Jones. The follow-up to A Bad Wind Blows In My Heart was written and recorded by Ryder-Jones in his childhood bedroom at his mother's house in West Kirby before being filtered through Liverpool's legendary Parr Street Studios.
A classic band record, West Kirby County Primary features Bill playing a multitude of instruments including the electric guitar with his trademark prowess. Mixed by James Ford, each of West Kirby County Primary's ten tracks offers a sneaked glance into his private world; they eavesdrop on a set of encounters that go about "turning stories into beautiful truth" set to glorious molten melody that explodes like fireworks over water.
It all adds up to a remarkable record by one of our most cherished musicians – a musical polymath as at ease on stage or on live guitar duties with Arctic Monkeys as he is on production duties with Hooton Tennis Club and The Wytches. The LP is a single 180 gram heavyweight vinyl in a gatefold LP jacket, includes a four page 12" x 12" color booklet and a MP3 download card.
