Space Spools 

What's that, you say? The splendid Dark Outside label is releasing BLACK ARROW and ETHER/ORBIT together on a special dual colour cassette?


That's right! Tapes will be limited to 100 copies, so make sure you set your alarm for launch and bookmark on Bandcamp ready for blast off tomorrow, Friday 14th January, at 6pm (Greenwich/Galloway Mean Time). You can also get an additional nudge via the mailing list, which is a good idea, as they often sell out quickly.

I've been sending demos and oddities to The Dark

Track and Field 

From High Down to Huygens, it's been exciting (not to mention a nice surprise) to see the new collaboration between Electronic Sound magazine and globe-spanning field recording project Cities and Memory. The new issue features an interview with Cities and Memory founder, Stuart Fowkes, along with a few picks from previous releases and I'm really pleased to say that Huygens is one of them (along with the original sound source for additional context)! The bundle edition comes with an excellent double CD…

Invisible Waves and Seasonal Joints 

When everything has felt firmly glued to the spot (and the sofa at certain points), I'd like to say thank you to everyone who joined me for a trip into space, with a special nod to Wavegirl, Simon and The Joint radio show (already well into 2021) for their kind end-of-year words and airplay. It's been really lovely and encouraging to read.

Best EP of 2020:

This is a work of stunning beauty from beginning to end, coupled with the artwork... wow!
I really can't wait to see what…

Moonkind 

Exciting to see the Cities & Memory #SpaceIsThePlace project receiving support from The Guardian, The Quietus, Bluedot Festival and even the European Space Agency. The long-running field recording project brought together artists from all over the world to rework sounds from space in celebration of the anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission and I contributed a track called ‘Huygens’ which uses an alien weather signal as its foundation.

The picture above is a small disc that was left behind from the Apollo 11…

Resonate in The Independent 

With conversations forming around algorithmic bias and the skewed payment models of larger streaming services, what viable alternatives are on offer for musicians and listeners?

Journalist and filmmaker Hazel Sheffield explores one such option, Resonate, which also includes a few of my thoughts on sustainability, streaming and inviting audiences to participate, rather than consume. Read it via The Independent.

A Gilded Alternative 

Above is one of the original album cover ideas for Gilded Cage by photographer and visual collaborator @zomtographer after a day spent building, cladding and furnishing a retro living room set, long before pink carpets and orange curtains became the dominant decor.

On the subject of which, I recently answered a few questions for the brilliant We Are Cult about small town peculiarities on film and wood cladding. Those with strong opinions on tombstones and ugly crying are also in for a treat. ⚰️
