December 2013 sees the release of “The Stillness of the Sea”, the second album from I Am Your Autopilot.
The album is made up of 13 tracks that see I Am Your Autopilot at their creative peak, demonstrating a confidence that shows off both their writing ability and their mastery of technology. The album is a collection of meticulously crafted songs that effortlessly blend soulful electronics, choral vocals, orchestral textures, chiming acoustic guitars and analogue synth oscillations. Listening to the album is like eavesdropping on a dream rehearsal with Brian Eno, Grizzly Bear, Laurie Anderson and Boards of Canada.
The album includes one cover, a little known Space-rock classic, “Little Neutrino” by ‘70s band Klaatu, best known for writing “Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft”, a 1977 hit for The Carpenters. Klaatu managed to cause a media storm in the early ‘70s when a press rumour circulated that they were a front for a secret “Beatles” project. Dee Long from Klaatu has been hugely supportive and given the I Am Your Autopilot version of the song his personal, enthusiastic approval.
I Am Your Autopilot have an ongoing collaboration with NY multimedia artist and musician Fredo Viola (Because Music), touring as his band, and performing with him recently at the Prix Constantin held at Paris Olympia. They have also recently collaborated with enigmatic French electronic artist, Arandel (Infine Music).
I Am Your Autopilot will be celebrating the release and showcasing songs from the new album on Friday December 13th at 2022NQ in Manchester where copies od the album will be available.
The album is also available at Piccadilly Records Manchester or via the band’s website iamyourautopilot.com, or as a download via i-tunes, Amazon, Spotify, e-music, Deezer and many other online stores.Tags: 2022NQ / Manchester / Northern Quarter
