Better Harvest

A Playlist by Constant Follower.

It was photography that Frank Horvat described as “The art of not pushing the button”, but captured in that statement is the essence of what it is I search for in the music I write and listen to - knowing when not to play and where to leave or make space. I think each of these songs display this to a greater or lesser degree.  It’s a constant struggle against the urge to add more, to fill it out and to recognise when something is finished. I think it’s our nature to want to make things better and we’re constantly told by the media that more is better. In the case of the music I listen to and write, less is most often more.
