How can it be that a man and a woman, living oceans apart on opposite sides of the world, whose ages span the generations, unite in one similar vision? On Dorothy, Diagrams’ Sam Genders and 90-year-old Washington State-based poet, Dorothy Trogdon explore science and nature through a unique collaboration. It’s a beautiful album that spans space, distance and time, and shows there is much to learn from other generations. Pieced together like a meticulously crafted jigsaw over 4 days in drummer Rob Wilks’ studio in Kent, Dorothy features instinctive arrangements from Kelly Pratt (St Vincent, David Byrne, Arcade Fire, Beirut) and Diagrams regulars Sam Ewens, Danyal Dhondy and Astra Forward. On production duties Sam enlisted Kristofer Harris (Smoke Fairies, Clock Opera) for his wonderfully warm analogue style as well as the light skittering electronics of former Tunng and Throws colleague Mike Lindsay (Speech Debelle, Low Roar).
