King Creosote & Jon Hopkins - Third Swan

Diamond Mine, the 2011 collaborative album by Scottish singer/songwriter King Creosote and English electronica musician Jon Hopkins is one of the most fascinating albums I have heard in recent years. It's a very successful meeting of King Creosote's seemingly simple songs and Hopkins' exciting and beautiful field recordings, creating extraordinary and unusual results. The album was expanded with an additional five songs last spring to create a "Jubilee Edition", and from this I have picked "Third Swan" for your listening - and viewing - pleasure. The accompanying animated film shows a larger than life swan in a role usually reserved for Godzilla or T. Rex, destroying everything in its wake, even crushing a car when losing a feather.

Watch and listen
