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.
