Digital downloads available now, CD released 03/12/2012
Pavilion is the latest full length album from Longstone. It features five brand new studio compositions inspired by the modernist architecture of the De La Warr Pavilion, where the band performed live in October 2011. In addition the studio pieces on the album are accompanied by a recording of the complete live set from that night.
The concert was used as an opportunity to debut early versions of two of the new pieces as well as highlighting the improvisational skills of the band on several recent back catalogue tracks. Longstone were so inspired by the pioneering modernist structure of the 1935 Pavilion and how it echoed the architectural themes of their debut album “Surrounded by Glass ” that they decided to enter the studio to refine the new compositions in a style that reflected the feel of the building. The measured, layered electronica created was augmented by carefully considered woodwind, bass guitar and diverse but focused DIY percussion and provides a perfect balance to the more expansive and improvisational live recording.
As a taster for the album Longstone have posted an exclusive remix of the title track at their SoundCloud site . This machine remix of the title track Pavilion does not appear on the album .
