The Declining Winter
Belmont Slope

No one evokes the emotional atmospheres of Northern England quite like Richard Adams, so thank God he's made Belmont Slope, a musical fable about the M62. Mysterious and muffled, he returns under his Declining Winter moniker to detail further secrets hiding in Yorkshire's soil and concrete. If it's anything like the magnificent Home for Lost Souls, it should deliver intimate pop gems influenced by his favourite stay-at-home songwriters -- while occasionally reaching for the expanse of old band Hood.

Memory Drawings
The Nearest Exit

Third album from the Anglo/American collective Memory Drawings, featuring members of Hood, Manyfingers, Brave Timbers and Movietone. Pushing their exquisite dulcimer/guitar/violin sound deeper into the heart of post-rock (with nods towards Bark Psychosis and Tortoise courtesy of the polyrhythmic playing of newly-joined drummer Chris Cole) these beautiful cinematic compositions perfectly soundtrack the onset of autumn. All versions include a bonus remix album featuring Isnaj Dui, Edward Ka-Spel, Robert Rich, Leaf Library, and more.

Northern Exchange
The Loveliest Lanes We Knew

Northern Exchange were a short-lived duo, operating from either side of the Pennines. They only put together one EP in their time, with three short tracks, and here it is. The Loveliest Lanes We Knew is a sweet set of songs, made with minimal means and (apparently) a deep love of Young Marble Giants. A short but sweet career, captured in full on a 3” CDr. On Rural Colours.

Memory Drawings
Music For Another Loss.

A long awaited re-issue of one of our favourite albums over the last few years. Memory Drawings are led by dulcimer player Joel Hanson alongside Hood and sometime the Declining Winter main-man Richard Adams and Brave Timbers expert violinist Sarah Kemp.  They produce a wonderfully unique form of neo-classical music with chiming dulcimer and guitar figures intertwining underneath curling stringed beauty. This limited edition black vinyl pressing contains the full original instrumental album plus a download featuring the album plus vocal versions of many of the tracks and a clutch of remixes by Rachel Grimes, Dakota Suite, Piano Magic  and Bracken. 

Memory Drawings
There Is No Perfect Place

The first 200 copies of the album comes with a bonus CD containing excellent remixes by The Sly and Unseen, Benoit Pioulard, William Ryan Fritch, Pausal, A New Line (Related), and Talvihorros. Memory Drawings consist of American hammered dulcimer player Joel Hanson who alongside Hood's Richard Adams and Lanterns on the Lake's Sarah Kemp to create beguiling instrumental chamber folk music. 'There is No Perfect Place" is their second full length album following the well-received and long sold out 'Music for Another Loss' on Second Language. It continues their infatuation with cinematic textures and 'Straight Story' soundtrack like instrumental vignettes but widens their pallete with kraut-driven opuses like 'The Island of the Day Before' and the gorgeous Talk Talk/Sakamoto piece 'There is a World Without You'.
