The Maple Trail, the solo project of Sydney-based musician Aidan Roberts is launching his latest album Cable Mount Warning.

With Cable Mount Warning, The Maple Trail charges forth in a calamitous chorus of layered, epic, bright and summery folk songs. Roberts describes the albums sound as similar to “Bryter Layter (Nick Drake) and Tubular Bells (Mike Oldfield)”. The Maple Trail will take you down a dark winding path and then throw you into the light.

His third solo album, Cable Mount Warning is a change of scenery and method. The album is an exercise in writing over 18 months, spanning across New Zealand, at home in the Blue Mountains, and recorded amongst the clutter and kipple of his new urban home studio in Stanmore, Sydney. Roberts focused almost exclusively on recording acoustic instruments, and the album was mixed with Liam Judson, long time collaborator and co-songwriter in Belles Will Ring. The result is the most concise and buoyant exhibition of The Maple Trail’s sound to date.

The Maple Trail is something of a personal odyssey, a musical journey that has traversed the ravines of Sydney’s metropolitan limits and rearticulated itself across hundreds of hours of tape and performances.
