Dan Le Sac

Dan Le Sac’s ‘Space Between The Words’ album was one of my favourites of last year, a record of varied influences and sounds with perfectly selected guest vocalists lifting Dan’s instrumentals yet further. Almost nine months since the album’s release, last week 6music’s Tom Robinson and Xfm’s Eddy Temple-Morris debuted a brand new instrumental from the Le Sac cannon, entitled ‘Four Thousand Thumbnails’.

Released seemingly for no other reason than it’s Dan’s birthday this Sunday (many happy returns), it’s more frantic in pace and feel than any on ‘Space Between The Words’. This speed, perhaps by design, matches the theme of the accompanying video, in which we speed through 4000 images of Dan and friends from the past few years featuring a plethora of people, not least one Scroobius Pip.

And speaking of Pip, he and Dan have just announced their first headline show together in eighteen months at Birthdays in Dalston on 18 Jul. The pair will also be playing the Camp Bestival, Y Not and Truck festivals this summer.

Anyway, that’s all in the future. Let’s get back to this solo Dan Le Sac track, the video for which you can watch here:
