Leighton Craig is a musician based in Brisbane, Australia.
Over the past decade and a half he has played a central role in the Brisbane outsider music community. Performing in a clutch of key units, including free-rock mainstays The Lost Domain, pop miniaturists The Deadnotes and the dream-float duo Primitive Motion. Each of these groups bares the mark of his innate melodic sensibility and his uniquely understated aesthetic approaches.
As a soloist, he has pursued a low-tech approach to keyboard studies, song forms, field recording and sound installation.
"Green Coronet" is the long overdue follow-up to his solo Room 40 album "11 Easy Pieces". Largely a live home studio recording, GC is a dreamy suite of four cyclic jams celebrating the fuzzy tones of Craig's favoured Coronet Phase 2 amplifier.
With its warm keyboard and clarinet cycles, looped aquatic choral refrains and mics dangling out the studio window, GC unfolds as an unlikely sub-tropical Harold Budd homage - with a lo-fi suburban edge and noise outro!
