Semi Precious /// When It’s Hardby David Pearl | 30.01.14
Sometimes you’re not quite ready for good music. It just slides through an open door and crawls into your bed and sets its tunes right into your ears and heart.
Guy Baron’s music project as “Semi Precious” began as a project for his music degree in Goldsmiths University in London and developed into a beautiful and intriguing body of work compiled into a short and stunning EP. The songs are based on samples from not-to-old songs by different artist that Guy cherishes and wanted to leave a mark on them before he continues to other musical projects combined with his soft vocals floating above all (à la James Blake). You can totally fall in love with these 4 songs while drifting to other dimensions and hoping he will release more of this beauty in the future.
Listen below to the beautiful “When It’s Hard” (combining the Isreali artist Sivan Shavit with Jazzanova’s “Another Day”) and visit the “Semi Precious” web site for more info about the project.
