- Documenting The Decay by Charles Vaughan
Here's a CD on the Epic 45 curated Wayside & Woodland label. As ever it looks lovely, housed in a brown digipack job and it's all handmade with things stuck on the sleeve, hand stamped goodness and there's a plethora of free bits of card inside with black and white pics of the countryside. I don't know much about this chap aside from he's been listed in the credits of the last few Epic 45 releases so I expect he's played somewhere or other on 'em. Musically it's an odd blend of pastoral ambient drone which works well. In fact it reminds me of Persistent Repetitions by the Caretaker at moments. It has a nostalgic feel coupled with a losing your memory/ marbles feel. So essentially it's a very subtle album drenched in a hazy amnesia. There's plenty of twinkles in there as well for those who need the twinkle. The closing track is somewhat of an anomaly with its wonky acoustic guitar, wonky piano, scratched record noises, gentle percussion before it develops into a more familiar warm sounding hum. I've just listened to this from start to end and I'm already planning when I'm gonna play it next which is usually a good sign. Nice work!
