A little more than half a year after Sam Shepherd released his debut-album as Floating Points, the London-based musician and producer just announced the next release on his own Pluto label. “Kuiper” is the title track of the EP of the same name, an eighteen-and-half-minute long, what sounds to me like the result of an incredible band jam. For the last couple of weeks, Sam has been touring North America for a live tour with band mates including Eglo’s own Kirkis on guitar, Jim Orso (East Coast dates only) and Leo Taylor on drums, Susumu Mukai on bass, and Alex Reeve on guitar. After my first listen, I started wild guessing who else might be on the record: James Holden, Four Tet, maybe Caribou?
Update: The date above applies to the vinyl only, the digital release is available now!
