Film At 11: Judy Dyble And Andy Lewis

Founding Fairport Convention vocalist Judy Dyble has teamed with retro-minded DJ/producer and sometime member of Paul Weller’s band Andy Lewis for Summer Dancing (out August 18 on Acid Jazz), connecting the dots between late-’60s British folk sounds and the era’s baroque, pastoral and/or lysergic pop music. Think plenty of harpsichords, recorders and autoharp, and bucketloads of trippy effects and ambient sound fragments, united by Dyble’s still remarkably pure-toned soprano. The results echo any number of indelibly British daydreamers, from Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd and XTC at its wispiest on down to Saint Etienne and the Clientele: rife with memory and magic, as fragrant and saturated as a sticky, sleepless summer night. Lewis says album track “Night Of A Thousand Hours” is “about trying to sleep in an unfamiliar bed but being kept awake by the noises of a brain that won’t switch off and a chiming clock downstairs that won’t shut the fuck up.” The duo has made a video for the song, directed by Francesco Paolo Pladini, who says his idea for the clip is “an open door between sleep and wake where reality takes on different identities and where the details come back as if dancing to the sound of a huge clock and the magical voice of Judy.” We are proud to premiere the video for “Night Of A Thousand Hours” today on magnetmagazine.com. Watch it below.
