Kit Mix #138 // Ed Dowie

Ed Dowie cut his teeth as a chorister and organist in Dorset before moving London-wards to refine his unique brand of reverential, fractal-voiced pop. His excellent, Ishiguro inspired debut LP, The Uncle Sold, came out via Lost Map Records last year. In true Lost Map style, Ed’s mix is family-themed, encompassing all manner of relations, sordid and wholesome, starting with a fruity one from the great Ivor Cutler. He’s even gone and recorded some jingles in a cathedral! Amazing.
