Padang Food Tigers (Stephen Lewis / Spencer Grady): God's Plenty (Shhpuma)

Blurring abstract electronics with folk improvisation in gently evolving music with an experimental edge, the London Panang Food Tigers duo of Stephen Lewis and Spencer Grady use keyboards, guitars, dobro, charango, field recordings and electronic sources to create contemplative atmospheres, a sort of ambient-folk music drawing out forgotten daydreams and moods; beautiful.

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Padang Food Tigers - comprised of London duo Stephen Lewis and Spencer Grady - release their fifth album, God's Plenty, an enchanting, often surreal, ambient-folk tapestry full of dreamlike reveries and poignantly real memories.

Weaving minimal acoustic abstractions of dobro and banjo atop organ-led drones and keening lap- steel flickers, the pair's emotive music sees them engage in a succession of playful improvisational back-and-forths, while imbuing their more traditionally-minded tendencies with a spectral, hypnagogic gauze and spontaneous sense of wonder.

Still marked by the signature traces of Ry Cooder, Virginia Astley, Scott Tuma and Bruce Langhorne's The Hired Hand that characterised earlier works, God's Plenty finds Padang Food Tigers relocating to an increasingly phantasmagorical realm, a locus where family ghosts co-habit with bizarre radio transmissions and the reverb-drenched blues of an electric guitar mournfully makes its plea beside a doleful gutbucket refrain."-Shhpuma
