Manyfingers (aka multi-instrumentalist Chris Cole) emerged out of the shady and mysterious Bristol scene that spawned the likes of Flying Saucer Attack, Movietone, Third Eye Foundation and Amp. Previously best known as Third Eye Foundation luminary Matt Elliott’s right hand man, cellist and drinking buddy, Cole has also been a sometime member of legendary pastoralists Movietone as well as being the drummer of the excellent post rock band Soeza. On his 2006 full lenght debut album ‘Our Worn Shadow’ he played piano, drums, cello, spanish guitar, accordion, vibraphone and other assorted instruments to create a veritable whirlwind of sound.  The record takes its cue from the Four Tet of ‘Pause’ and ‘Rounds’ but adds Yann Tiersen style accordion and string arrangements played with the intensity of Godspeed You Black Emperor! at their ground shaking best. This Acuarela release was presented  with a bonus track and an accompanying DVD. Intimately filmed at the Cube, Bristol's legendary arthouse cinema, it documents in detail how Manyfingers carefully layers up vast arrays of instruments to create his hypnotic masterpieces. The DVD also includes a “short” film by Joost Van Veen, a Rotterdam based filmmaker.
