Listen To 'Luke Wood / Luke Shaw: St Martin's New World'

Hopefully not engulfed in floodwaters currently threatening central Ōtautahi, St Martin's New World is both the name of a conveniently located shopping experience and an entire new album from Luke Wood and Luke Shaw, aka The Opawa 45s. Launched late last week in Lyttelton on double vinyl LP, with bespoke screen-printed covers plus artwork insert by Annabelle McLaughlin and liner notes by Dr Barbara Garrie, the long player's immaculately presented, strictly limited physical edition is a thing of beauty, as we have come to expect from Ilam Press Records. A stretched-out, seven track soundscape journey, four tunes showcase the string-tangled interplay of Wood and Shaw in deep focus duo mode, while the remaining three welcome on board drummers Tim Brott and Simon Maclaren. Sporting a cover designed by Wood tipping the hat to curmudgeonly US fingerstyle guitar legend John Fahey, dive into Luke Wood / Luke Shaw: St Martin's New World and keep on the lookout for live appearances from the pair in the near future...

'Luke Wood / Luke Shaw: St Martin's New World' is out now via Ilam Press Records.
