The Kiss Of Spirit And Flesh


New album on Kscope from Daniel Cavanagh & Daniel Cardoso (Anathema) with Sean Jude and Kevin Murphy. Leafblade was formed in 2003 by Sean Jude, Kevin Murphy and Daniel Cavanagh of Anathema. Their powerful, yet subtle, blend of acoustic refrains, poetry and emotive vocals has been described as 'nature-mystical'. Sean and Kevin have played and composed together since the early 1990s when they were both in the acclaimed progressive band, Valle Crucis. Valle Crucis were contemporaries of Anathema on the Liverpool music scene and Daniel was a long time admirer of Sean's song writing style. The union of Leafblade offered all three the chance to explore new sonic possibilities and created not just a musical collaboration but also the start of many journeys; geographical, spiritual and creative. Leafblade have previously released one album, 2006's 'Beyond, Beyond'. They returned in 2013 with a new album, 'The Kiss of Spirit and Flesh', released via Kscope. Joining them on the new album by Dan's Anathema bandmate, Daniel Cardoso on drums. Produced by Cavanagh, 'The Kiss of Spirit and Flesh' stepped up the dynamics from 'Beyond, Beyond', with powerful anthemic refrains, uplifting orchestration and leaden guitar-work as well as the idiosyncratic lute-like nylon strings and multi-range vocals. By turns haunting, troubadour, far-reaching, articulate, 'The Kiss of Spirit and Flesh' is washed through with lush symphonic weaving and percussion. The eight track CD will be released via Kscope, presented in a jewel case with a 12 page colour booklet.
