Fink - See It All

(Download) Ninja Tune ZENDNLS250, 2009-10-12

Fink returns with the second single from his 3rd album of his Ninja Tune Records trilogy, Sort of Revolution. See It All, one of the album's signature tracks, is blessed with falling piano lines, pulsing electric bass, and a driving rhythm which combines relentless propulsion with sublime subtlety. Q&A finds Fink in a deeply soulful and moody a cappella, building a tune from his own vocal parts - layers of harmony buzzing through your ears, as warm and rich as it is clever and hypnotic. Both of these tracks were recently recorded live on Fink's latest Gilles Peterson Maida Vale session for BBC Radio 1, while the LP version of See It All has just been confirmed as the opening track on the season premiere on the longstanding and now infamous TV show CSI:NY.

Press Release :
Fink returns with the second single from his 3rd album of his Ninja Tune Records trilogy, "Sort of Revolution."

"See It All," one of the album's signature tracks, is blessed with falling piano lines, pulsing electric bass, and a driving rhythm which combines relentless propulsion with sublime subtlety. "Q&A" finds Fink in a deeply soulful and moody a cappella, building a tune from his own vocal parts - layers of harmony buzzing through your ears, as warm and rich as it is clever and hypnotic. Both of these tracks were recently recorded live on Fink's latest Gilles Peterson Maida Vale session for BBC Radio 1, while the LP version of "See It All" has just been confirmed as the opening track on the season premiere on the longstanding and now infamous TV show CSI:NY.

Remixes come from D*L*I*D (fresh from their stunning remix of Phoenix's "1901" single, this remix is only their second!), Emika (Ninja Tune's latest signing, bringing Berlin heaviness to the table), and Fink's dub alter-ego, Sideshow (critically lauded and internationally sharing 12's with Martyn, remixing Appleblim, and releasing albums on Aus Music). D*L*I*D channels the spirit of J-Dilla, turning the original into a super-heavy head-nodder. Label-mate Emika turns the original into a dark and brooding epic that builds towards a huge finale – a la Massive Attack with serious skunk-paranoia. Sideshow once again showcases Fink's production cred with an echo box and compression chamber, skillfully stripping the parts and fitting them together into brand new shapes.

Fin Greenall, aka Fink, is among the more understated of the world's 'singer-songwriters', relying on uncompromising quality of work and an astounding stage presence, rather than major label marketing budgets. A master lyricist and in-demand songwriter, having most recently co-written with John Legend for Legend's 'Evolver' LP as well as two of Ninja Tune's latest signings: Andreya Triana and Emika. Currently touring the UK with band mates Guy Whittaker on bass and Tim Thornton on drums, Fink is as hectic as ever with a tour of France throughout October; November spent in China, Hong Kong, and Vietnam; the USA in December; and Australia (including 3 headline evenings at the Sydney Festival) and Japan in January.

See It All / Q&A, taken from the Sort of Revolution LP, is released on Ninja Tune records on 19 October as a download only....
