Built From Sticks ‎– Half Steps

Release Date: 30 August 2012
Label: Duskdarter

"Duskdarter is an independent music label based in Brisbane. The label aims to bring together a community of like-minded musicians interested in, but not limited to, ambient and instrumental music. The primary focus of this label is to build an audience in Brisbane and around Australia and open the doors to the international community.

Recorded in early 2012, Half Steps is the follow up to Built From Stick's quietly well received I'm Not Finished Yet release. His fourth album sees the artist further explore both his fascination with intricate instrumental music and his love of slowcore. Opening with delicate guitar instrumentals and gradually moving into more traditional folk territory, the album continues to guide the listener into new and unexpected places. The title track, a soft guitar piece featuring accompanying trumpet from ghost notes bandmate Luke McCallum, is followed by a waltz driven piano piece with Jamie's unique vocal stylings. Throughout the album, guitar and piano are occasionally accompanied by drums (by Cam Smith), violin (by Jamie himself) and any other instrument he can get his hands on. This variation leaves every track it's own uniqueness."
