Nightports w/ Tom Herbert is the new collaborative album from inventive British duo Nightports with phenomenal bass player Tom Herbert, releasing on May 6th via The Leaf Label. Throughout Nightports w/ Tom Herbert, Herbert’s command of the double bass is on display. Speaking about the recording process, he says:
“Recording the music for the Nightports album was a very straightforward and enjoyable experience for me, I had nothing to prepare or learn and just spent a relaxed, if intensive, day of recording with Adam and Mark, who just let me improvise, occasionally throwing in a suggestion or idea for me to explore. They had the difficult job of sifting through the recordings and editing and shaping it into a coherent piece of work! I had very little memory of what I had played and I had no idea how extreme Adam and Mark were going to get with their production, so whenever they sent me anything it was always a surprise. I’m very proud of this music. It really feels like a great balance between and representation of my playing and their vision.”
The news emerged last month along with the first riveting single, ‘Arcs’ and now they are following it up with a second single called ‘October’ and an accompanying video by GOOD BOY. Watch it below.
