James Yorkston & Second Hand Orchestra

James Yorkston took five years to make his 2019 album The Route to the Harmonium — its 2021 follow-up, on the other hand, was recorded in just two sessions. Made with Swedish collective The Second Hand Orchestra, The Wide, Wide River brims with improvisational joy. Across eight tracks, or what Yorkston calls “castings of the net”, the prolific Scottish singer-songwriter and his Swedish collaborators evoke a warmly spontaneous mood. James Yorkston has been making albums for almost two decades, from early days among the indie Fence Collective scene in noughties Fife to embarking on fiction writing and a minimalist trio of albums.
