An interview with Sam Genders of Diagrams, and album review of Black Light

Sam Genders left experimental folk band Tunng a few years ago. After time out teaching and working with other musicians he's back with a stand out new album, Black Light.

The former frontman of Tunng returns with his solo project, Diagrams. Black Light is a laid back creation that exudes the lush harmonies and atmospheric lyrics that Tunng lovers will be familiar with. Acoustic instruments meld with electronically produced beats, but this time the sentiments are all Sam Genders' own. Standout tracks include the jaunty melody Tall Buildings, which is quickly followed by the hypnotic Night all Night. Antelope focuses on vocal gymnastics with the sparsest of choral accompaniments - the extra voices taking on animal-like characteristics. Animals are a common theme throughout, as the album explores the philosophical edges of humanity - all this melded with a delightful danceability.
