Will Burns & Hannah Peel
Pale Tussock

After the runaway success of the previous collaboration between Will Burns and Hannah Peel ('Chalk Hill Blue'), the pair join forces again to create hypnotic follow up - 'Pale Tussock'. The release is full of immersive electronics and escapist soundscapes, while tinged with the political and social anxieties of our era.

Will Burns & Hannah Peel
Chalk Hill Blue (Deluxe Edition)

Musician Hannah Peel and poet Will Burns link up for the dreamy Chalk Hill Blue. Neither artist takes the lead here, sometimes Burns responds to Peel and sometimes Peel to Burns. The result is always captivating; Burns delivers his poems with authority and conviction, while Peel's music is as eccentric as usual. This edition is bundled with the duo's 'Pale Tussock' 7".

Darren Hayman
Thankful Villages Vol. 2

Darren Hayman (formerly of Hefner), continues his series of records themed around visits to English villages: specifically, the ones who lost no soldiers during World War 1. Thankful Villages Volume 2 digs into the folk histories of eighteen villages, weaving field recordings and interviews into his songcraft. CD / LP release on Rivertones.

Kate Carr
I Had Myself A Nuclear Spring

Kate Carr is an accomplished field recordist, and the enticingly-titled I Had Myself A Nuclear Spring is what she extracted from the surroundings of the desolate French town of Marnay, which comprise a flooded river and a power plant. She sets of the resulting mixtures of electro-hum and water-drip with careful melodic tones and even guitar. A good and involving listen on Rivertones.

Be
One

The concept behind Be’s album One is intriguing: an imagined version of what a honeybee might hear over the course of a British summertime. Field recordings are used, as are delicate improvisations, including parts from Amiina and Jason Pierce of Spiritualized (to name just two). A neat little project, released by Caught By The River offshoot label Rivertones.

Darren Hayman
Thankful Villages Vol. 1

Darren Hayman (formerly of Hefner), themed this release (the first in a series of 3, we are told) around visits to English villages: specifically, the ones who lost no soldiers during World War 1. This heavy subject matter leads to intimate music, with each song of Thankful Villages Vol. 1 exploring the space and feel of an individual village. CD / LP release on Rivertones.
