Nostalgia 77’s fervent fanbase has been clamouring for his return and can now rest assured that it has been worth the wait, as the spoils of those extra-curricular excursions inform a refreshed stylistic palette and intensity on the new LP. Although Nostalgia 77 is widely known as a jazz producer (with plaudits including the John Peel ‘Play More Jazz’ award, and Gilles Peterson’s Jazz Track of the Year) “The Sleepwalking Society” is rich with overtones of blues and folk.

Key to the structure and cohesion of the album was Lamdin’s decision to work with just one vocalist, where he has previously called on a handful of featured singers. The invigoratingly rich-voiced Josa Peit takes on this role like she was born to do it, breathing colourful life into Lamdin’s creations; sensual, strong and earthly with a dusting of the ethereal and fanciful, and some bluesy subversions of note and melody.

Since “Everything Under The Sun” – the last Nostalgia 77 studio album proper – producer Benedic Lamdin has been busy working as producer, engineer, musician and more on projects involving Keith and Julie Tippett, Jeb Loy Nichols, Lizzy Parks, Larry Stabbins, Alice Russell, Sara Mitra, Fringe Magnetic, Golden Age of Steam and his own Octet.

Previous Nostalgia 77 records have been positively reviewed/featured in The Independent On Sunday, Uncut, The Guardian, Record Collector, Jazzwise, XLR8R, Shook, BBC Music.
