Didn't expect one of the most captivating and spellbinding records I've heard this year to be an ode to the table, nor did I expect that field recordings of rhythm scatterings from said furniture to provide such textural richness to an album. Mike Lindsay of Tunng and LUMP presents an album that celebrates mundane domestic items that make up our everyday home living with Anna B. Savage narrating the simple rituals of being home.

On the top floor of RG Scotts in Margate you’ll find an assortment of tables — tables that became field recordings, then programmed scatter rhythms, and eventually the foundations of the new solo album from Mike Lindsay: supershapes (volume 1).

It’s the first instalment in a series of records from the Mercury Prize-winning producer and mixing engineer (who’s also the co-founder of UK acid folktronica band Tunng, and one half of electronic alt-psych duo LUMP, with Laura Marling), a series that explores “the miraculous in the mundane”. Volume 1 looks widely at “everyday domestic objects, especially tables, coffee table books, and the daily rituals that shape us, heavily focusing on the majestic in the domestic”.

The album is a kind of table in its own right: those who sit round it include Anna B Savage and many other musicians and artists — a sense of collaboration that has run through all of Lindsay’s work.
