THE XAVIER DE MAISTRE SURVIVAL GUIDE
All money made from sales of this release will go towards supporting London’s IKLECTIK – a vital room that everyone should explore, and which needs additional support in these challenging times.
“After all, is there any person so unhappy, so abandoned, that he doesn’t have a little den into which he can withdraw and hide away from everyone? Nothing more elaborate is needed for the journey.”
The four tracks on The Xavier De Maistre Survival Guide were recorded between December 2019 and January 2020, and inspired by the title and approach, but not necessarily the content, of De Maistre’s “Voyage Around My Room.” Built around owning isolation and relishing minutiae, De Maistre’s work has taken on a different significance in recent weeks.
