Matthew Shaw continues his tour of darn sarf where he goes to a place, soaks in the vibe and then creates a piece of music based on his experiences there. Nice idea actually, and I did thoroughly enjoy his Lanreath CD. Seatown is a tiny place just south of Chideock in West Dorset and there Matthew spent a week in a cottage eating pasties, playing with fossils and making this lovely thing. Bowed guitar and phonography (whatever that is... I hope it's not rude...) are the sounds on offer and you end up with a very nautical sounding album. The bowed guitar sounds lush over the drones and waves of blustery sea noises and wind sounds. It is just one 33 minute track and the bowed guitar makes it quite mantra-like as it's very repetitive but it helps take you on your journey to Seatown. Hand numbered of 50 copies! Lovely!!
