Jan Linton returns with collaborator Leo Abrahams (Eno, David Byrne, Imogen Heap etc) for his first song-based album since 2005's Planet Japan.
Following a series of instrumental, ambient CDs on Entropy Records (in collaboration with China's Buddha Machine and ex-Bowie bassist Matthew Seligman), Linton now returns to the song form and a more traditional Art Pop vein.
I Actually Come Back begins with the lush Kindness Overture, featuring Abrahams' soaring guitar lines and an evocative string arrangement. The rest of the 34 minute album takes in influences from Electro-Pop, Post Rock, Ambient, Blues and Classical.
A sensuous, sometimes bittersweet, return to the UK music scene from one of Asia's most mysterious British expat musicians.
