Info zu Green Grows Devotion (Selected Works) (Remastered 2022)

A 31 song double album collection of songs old and new ("A Chime", "Red Moon") "Green Grows Devotion" (Selected Works) with graphics by Tom Etherington and photographs and paintings for each song by Duncan.

'Early last year in that strange sort of limbo of a time, I was releasing songs as & when I’d finished messing around with them. It was kind of therapeutic to work as a musician in a more spontaneous way, no deadline or pressure other than to create songs that were a standard I was happy with and as a reaction to whatever was happening at that point. I started to build an album of these songs with no planned finishing point, making music to escape the strange days. Around the same time I received a message from Tom at Reveal Records asking if I’d like to release a compilation of my solo work. I already knew of Reveal Records as it is based back in my home town of Derby but even though we had lost touch over the years, I remembered Tom had been an enthusiastic early supporter of Maximo Park (we played a couple of in store sessions at his record shop around our first two albums). In fact our paths had crossed way before that even because I used to go into his shop as a young kid in the 90’s (saving up my pennies to buy records by Sonic Youth and Pixies and U.S. import Lemonheads t shirts). That all informed my path to becoming a musician so it feels fitting & fortunate that things have come full circle & we are now working together.

After going through the songs, we came up with, Green Grows Devotion. A collection of selected songs written & recorded all over the place and spanning nearly 12 years of writing.

The collection travels through a mixture of styles, veering from spacey experimental ideas to quieter acoustic songs, one, “Cathedral Doors”, was written shortly after I lost my Dad & pushed me further to explore my own self sufficiency and sound, from the rawer punk spirited to the sparser & psychedelic ones.

The recordings vary from lo-fi home recordings to full band recordings done in rehearsals spaces with a handful of microphones. Some of the songs are from short run albums I’ve released myself, some are unreleased & some are from EPs or singles I’ve put out leading right back to 2010 when I started. It's been exciting to hear them come out of the dark & cathartic to sequence them all like this on the new album.

Duncan Lloyd
Known as the architect of Maximo Park's music, guitarist/singer/songwriter Duncan Lloyd has several other musical projects and is also an exhibiting painter and photographer. Lloyd learned guitar in his teens while growing up in Derby, and played with a number of groups and recorded songs on his own throughout his school years. After moving to Newcastle to paint, he formed Maximo Park with bassist Archis Tiku, keyboardist Lukas Wooller, and drummer Tom English; though Tiku and Lloyd had been sharing vocal duties, they added frontman Paul Smith so that they could concentrate on songwriting. As Maximo Park's success grew -- their debut album, A Certain Trigger, was nominated for the Mercury Prize -- Lloyd branched out musically. Along with his work as a member of Derby's prolific improvisational outfit Res Band, he released his first solo album, Seeing Double, on Warp Records in 2008. Two years later, he began his experimental project Decade in Exile, whose releases included the Trail Places EP as well as a self-titled EP, both from 2013, and the 2014 full-length Transit Pulse. In 2015, Lloyd teamed up with vocalist Sarah Suri to form Nano Kino, a project inspired by their mutual love of the Cocteau Twins and Life Without Buildings. Their releases included the singles "Bike Ride" and "Never Seemed to Happen" and the Surfing on the Void EP. Lloyd's second album, I O U O M E, which featured "Heart in Delay," a collaboration with Eternal Summers' Nicole Yun, arrived in May 2017. (Heather Phares, AMG)
