Emily Barker

Hailing from Bridgetown, Western Australia, Emily Barker is a compelling songwriter with a gift for weaving melody and words. Her talent is perfectly complimented by the magnificent arrangements of her band The Red Clay Halo, whose rootsy ensemble playing underpins Barker's agile vocal blend of strength and fragility.

Together they have recorded three albums: the first was ‘Photos.Fires.Fables.' (2007) - an eclectic tapestry of old-time narratives weaving gothic stories of fire, tragedy, love and hard lessons... 

‘...sharply observed, original songs ...adventurously embellished by gypsy flourishes and haunting desert echoes that'd be at home on a Calexico album' 
Uncut
'This is a gorgeous, sincere voice that grabs you and won't let go'  The Sun
This was followed by ‘Despite The Snow' (2008) which was recorded in just four days over a snowy Easter weekend in Norfolk. Critically acclaimed in the UK and Australian music press, its opening track ‘Nostalgia' became the Bafta-winning theme tune to BBC One drama Wallander starring British actor Kenneth Branagh. The music went on to win a BAFTA and a Royal Television Award.

'Stripped free of studio frippery and all the better for its carefree simplicity' 4 stars  Q Magazine
'The hills have yet to be emptied of gold if you know where to look.'  The Times

February 2011 saw the release of ‘Almanac,' immediately attracting strong support from BBC radio with sessions for Cerys Matthews on 6 Music and Radio 4's Loose Ends, and single 'Little Deaths' picked as Record of the Week on Nemone's 6 Music show. A stream of sold-out UK tour dates followed, culminating in a rapturously received show at London's St Giles-In-The-Fields church at which 'Almanac' was performed in its entirety including a stunning, stark version of 'Pause'. This song has since been used as the theme tune to the BBC2 noir thriller The Shadow Line which received critical acclaim.

My first impression of LINN's NEW Akubarik's

Firstly I am all in favour of compact systems so for me it's a great advantage that they are fully active. Technical information you can get from the designer on the following video link http://vimeo.com/search?q=akubarik

I can pick a few points about the design. I don't like blue lights ... I'd hoped it would be smaller to fit more of my customers that have smaller rooms and apartments with neighbours. But actualythey look great, very tidy indeed. A good start and very interesting but how do they perform?

The obvious reference systems are Akurate 242 Aktiv with LINN Akurate amps or Klimax 350A's reference speakers.

Straight off the Akurate 242's can't compete on the bottom end. The Akubariks deliver controlled base no matter the volume. Whether the 3k array performs better than on aktive 242, I don't know but it's probably quite similar. It is very good. It's all very good and well balanced. At no point did I experience any issues with frequencies …

LINN have great new features with the new HDMI 2.0 board

With 4K content now available across a range of services, customers can now get great sound to match the high resolution of their screens.
From today every Klimax DSM, Klimax Exakt DSM, Akurate DSM, Akurate Exakt DSM and Majik DSM will ship with our new HDMI 2.0 board, offering full 4K support.

This HDMI board will also support HDR for better dynamic colour range, CEC for interoperability, and ARC to return audio from the television to the DSM.
