Music Week – Up A Tree
27th February 1999
Record Review

Better known as the bassist of last week’s Brit Award winners Belle & Sebastian, Stuart David and his wife Karn have created an imaginative album that’s part mellow beats, part performance art and part genius. Using samples of speech, delicate instrumentation and lots of looping, Up A Tree is firmly in the thoughtful B&S mode, not as fey. A large B&S fanbase will relish this beautiful album, as will those who like their music on the intelligent side.
