Multi-instrumentalist Marcus Hamblett is perhaps best known as a session musician working with folk/pop acts such as Laura Marling, Bear's Den and Willy Mason.
However, in 2015 he released his debut solo album – Concrete. It is is an entirely different beast, combining free improvisation with collage and strict arrangement in a way that hints at Gastr Del Sol, Tortoise and Six Organs Of Admittance. Vintage analog synths and awkward guitar melodies intermingle with ghostly female vocals, betraying the influence of Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai's 70’s horror theme music.
The Quietus said the album ““could be called post-rock if it didn’t also sound pre-rock, or maybe as if rock had never happened and folk, modern jazz and the classical avant-garde had merged into a stream of hip, innovative music to soundtrack the changes and discontents of the second half of the twentieth century instead, and Joe Meek had dug John Cage.”
In 2016, Hamblett toured solo across Europe supporting Timber Timbre and LNZNDRF, a new band featuring Scott and Bryan Devendorf of The National and Ben Lanz of Beirut.
Hamblett is also a member of many other bands including Eyes & No Eyes and Sons of Noel and Adrian and has worked as a producer, arranger or instrumentalist with countless others including James Holden, This Is The Kit, Fear of Men, Emma Gatrill, Rachael Dadd, Landshapes, Rozi Plain, Kristin McClement, Alessi's Ark, Peggy Sue, Broken Social Scene, The Staves, Lucy Rose and Dan Mangan.
