Big World is the newly recorded third album from singer/songwriter Tim Guy.

Following 2007’s experiment in lo-fi, Hummabyes, and the folk-pop of 2004’s Blazey, Big World is both a natural development of Tim’s classic pop-smarts and an aesthetic expansion into spaces as wide and wonderful as the title suggests.

A co-production between Tim and Jeremy Toy (additional guitars, bass, and keys), the album was recorded throughout 2009 in Auckland and features Julien Dyne on drums, with further help from Matt Short, Jason Smith, Ben King, Edmund McWilliams, and Anji Sami, whose sensuous backing vocals lend not only colour but feminine form to the record’s in-the-air romanticism.

Like all fine recordings, Big World’s pop credentials are the result of several stages of perfectionist graft. Jol Mulholland mixed the album and Dave Cooley (Serge Gainsbourg, Polyphonic Spree) mastered it in Los Angeles, both men expertly finalising what came from Jeremy’s imaginative studio-scientism and began with Tim’s relatively straight-with-a-twist songwriting style. The result is a lush transformation of Tim’s best songs into his strongest album to date.

To celebrate the release of Big World, the band will give a one-off performance of the album in its entirety, with each track accompanied by original footage plus a few worthwhile surprises.

Tim explains, "It’s a little ambitious, but we wanted to do a show where we take the focus off the musicians and blend it in to what’s happening on the screen.”

Anji Sami and her band will also perform her classic 2006 El Dorado EP, and Jol Mulholland will open with a solo set.

Big World available in all good record stores and online from May 17th.

Pre-sales $15 from Real Groovy or $20 doorsales from 8:30pm – seated show.
