Download of the week: Sheep, Dog and Wolf - Ablutophobia EP (NZ)
Self Released; 2011 | Folk, Alternative
“My name is Daniel McBride, 17 years of age, and Ablutophobia EP is the result of nine months on-and-off recording in a tiny little studio I’ve managed to set up in my bedroom. I composed and performed all the songs by myself, borrowing various instruments to try and live up to the ideas I had in my head - an endeavour that saw me teach myself cello and euphonium, simply because I’d decided they were essential to the song.
This obsessiveness with which I record has resulted in a lot of sleepless nights, food-less days, and social-contact-less weeks, but I think that it’s been worth it. This EP marks the first, and certainly not the last, release from Sheep, Dog and Wolf; a project that for the last nine months has been my steadily growing and increasingly demanding music-baby. So please, download and enjoy!”
