In this week's Baker's Dozen Mary Lattimore speaks to Kareem Ghezawi about the albums that have shaped her life, and how musical friendships sustain her work


Brian Eno – Discreet Music
Oh man I love this record so much, it's totally perfect and very beautiful. It's my favourite album of his, I can't really say why I just love how it sounds, it has a far away feeling like Washington Phillips where it just feel like it fades and hangs dream-like in the air.

It blends into the atmosphere.

It does but it's not background music that you can have a conversation over or something like that, I feel like you're supposed to listen to it.

Harp music actually inspired this record.

Yeah, I read that, he couldn't get up to turn down the volume of the record, so he had that in mind when he made this album, that kind of had that far away, softer and quieter sound.
