It’s fair to say that despite his long history and reputation, Karina ESP hasen’t been the most productive act around. Gowers started working on this record a few years ago, but things did not fall into the right place. Until late 2011, returning from a short Benelux-tour.
Gowers travelled to Scotland, where Fraser McGowan of Caught in the Wake Forever and Small Town Boredom managed to record the album in a matter of days.
And that’s what Detachment sounds like: thinking and doubting about something for a long time, and then letting it all out at the same time, telling what needs to be told, not holding back any details, but telling it clear enough so the point stays clear.
the cd comes in a mini lp-style cover. designed by chris gowers, printed at druckwerkstatt.
