Over the years we've sold about a million Epic 45 records. You guys... you love 'em! Well here's another one for you of sorts. It's by EL Heath which is Eric from Epic 45 and it's released on their Wayside And Woodland label. The album is named after Snailbeach lead Mine which was the largest lead mine in the UK back in the olden days when things were harder than they are now. He used to visit there as a child and it obviously had an effect on him as he's returned as an adult after saving up for recording equipment :) and recorded some of the sounds of the rusted up machinery and built up an album around those sounds. Listening to it though you wouldn't know that. It's gorgeous and there's not an industrial clank in site :)...... The Music is very much like latter Stars of The Lid (the last album comes to mind). Rich warm waves of neo classical drone wash over. Occasional vocal tracks take on a different approach as they go down a more British 60's folk route..... They blend seamlessly as the folk tracks still have some of the those warm sounding drones in the bacground. A remarkably moving and soulful album which gets my highest recommendation!
