Track of the Week: Lisa Knapp – Shipping Song

Lisa Knapp - Hidden SeamThis weeks Navigator track of the week is Lisa Knapp’s Shipping Song, taken from her 2013 album Hidden Seam.

Shipping Song is the album’s opening track and arises from Lisa’s fascination with the Met Office’s somnambulant, poetic late night shipping forecast; its strange and far-away sounding place names, Utsire, Viking, Fastnet and Lundy. A recording of American Marine sound testing from the 1950s was seamlessly sewn into the track, alongside the noises of sea creatures and spinning motors.

Hidden Seam is available now on Propermusic, Amazon, iTunes, Spotify and from all good record stores.
