To listen on Mixcloud:

“Its kind of themed. Trying to splice my twin loves of jazz and psych-folk essentially. It was great fun to make. Turns out I’ve got a lot of flutes in my record collection. And a surprising amount of sitar.”
(Nicholas Palmer)

Directorsound is the moniker for Dorset-based musician Nicholas Palmer. As well as comprising one half of The A. Lords (alongside Michael Tanner), Palmer’s Directorsound project has thus far created a string of gorgeous pastoral folk, jazz and exotica-inspired albums, culminating with the release of current studio album ‘I Hunt Alone’ (Second Language) and ‘Other Rivers’, a collection of fourteen previously unreleased Directorsound tracks (available now on Direcotrsound’s Bandcamp Page HERE).
