Genius Loci have an intriguingly packaged CD out on Acrobiotic called The Psychogeographical Commission, the picture we've got kind of makes it look like a three panel foldout map thing but it's actually a slimline DVD case job with the map printed on the inside of the sleeve and a little foldy insert. It's all about London. I know that 'cos the map is of a bit of London and some of the tracks are called things like 'Fires of London' and 'Camden Book of the Dead'. High concept! As are the influences, most notably the neofolk of David Tibet's Current 93 who this fella's singing/speaking voice is a real dead ringer for. Instrumentally its often based largely around watery guitar arpeggios and a submerged feel which makes me think of bad lads running around the capital in pairs with one of them getting on all fours behind people while the other pushes their victim from the front, watching them as they trip, screaming and cursing their delinquent foes, into the yukky old Thames where they'll flail about wildy with strands of poo stuck in their hair. It's probably more about murderers and depressing stuff, but still. It's pretty good stuff.
