'Tales Between the Tides' is the collective title that James Reid has given to the latest release on Autumn Ferment Records. The two tracks, recorded by James at his home in Fife at the start of 2007, are available together on limited edition 7" vinyl. With no plans to include them on any future albums they act as a bridge between his debut release 'Like a Buzzard Chased by Crows'(2006, Barl Fire Rec.) and future recordings.

In these songs of the sea James blends salty folk melodies on acoustic guitar, melodica and odd bits of percussion with dusty old field recordings, crackly, textured electronics, disembodied off kilter beats and warm bass lines to provide soundscapes for his sea shanty tales about life on the Scottish coastline.
