Coney Island Sound is a new project started by Ewan Gordon that mixes found sounds and field recordings with a variety of acoustic and vintage instruments.
The debut single “Introducing Mr.Kellogg” was released on September 22nd backed with the soft drink sampling “The Lemonade Song”. This is the first release on the Radio 1 DIY Label of the Week Regular Beat Recording Company. To date both sides of the single have picked up radio plays on NME Radio, BBC6, Radio 2, XFM, BBC Northern Ireland, BFBS, Resonance FM and College Radio in Canada.
Fear not, the stock pot of the mixed metaphor that is Coney Island Sound has been reducing nicely and an album of soupy goodness is almost in the can.Lots of strings and brass, cut up reels that i’ve found around second hand stores, Chopped percussion, snippets of dialogue i’ve caught from Cleethorpes to Whitby, Air Hockey Table solos.Lots of woodwind, 1950s atomic age tape and echo fun and Moogs at lots of different speeds.
