Kieran Hebden and Steve Reid
‘Tongues’, the new album from Kieran Hebden and Steve Reid will be released by Domino Records on Monday the 19th of March 2007. An impressive progression from the artists’ earlier ‘Exchange Sessions’, ‘Tongues’ is more explosive a work of music, a series of shorter tracks, a more focussed and even melodic blast – influenced by the heavy round of touring the duo have undertaken since their first musical encounters.
Kieran and Steve started working together in 2005. Steve Reid made his recording debut in 1964, aged 19, playing on Martha and The Vandellas ‘Dancing In The Street’. He has since worked with such notable artists as Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman, James Brown, Fela Kuti and Sun Ra and as a drummer for Motown. Kieran Hebden developed Four Tet’s sample-based collage of jazz, folk and soul textures in downtime between recording with Fridge, the band he started with school friends Adem Ilhan and Sam Jeffers. After Dialogue was released by Output, Kieran went on to produce Pause, Rounds and Everything Ecstatic for Domino.
