Birds. Bloody brilliant aren’t they? I’m not sure I could live without them. It's nice having a lovely bird twittering away first thing in the morning. There was an article in the York press last week that birds are disappearing from York. From where I’m standing they are all turning into Canada geese, as you can’t move for the dirty blighters.
Anyway, most birds aren’t blighters and are the loveliest and, dare I say, happiest of creatures and you would be wouldn’t you if you could fly and sing nicely. This is the third instalment of the Music and Migration series on Second Language, with the proceeds go to helping the birds. It contains the usual fine array of names, including Isan, Colleen, Directorsound, Gareth Dickson, Sharron Kraus, Mark Fry, Piano Magic’s Glen Johnson, the lesser spotted Memory Drawings and sound man extraordinaire Chris Watson and many, many more. All with never heard-before tracks exclusive to this release.
And not only that but you get a free CD of tracks from Music and Migration pied piper Martin Holm under his Home Current moniker, which have been remixed by the likes of The Boats, Chronomad, Opiate and others.
Anything else? Oh, yes: the packaging is utterly tremendous. On beautiful, thick card it folds out to reveal a lovely greenish painting of the sea with a bird swooping past. You don't see much of that in York these days.
10/10 cheebatv Customer review, 16th September 2013
Are we in the midst of a movement, an evocative movement of englishness. swathed in the ghostly past that never was or the future that never came to be. traditional haunted folk spinning a fine twine made from the countryside, nest building using the scythe and wine from olden times and the space of the 1950's perceived futures of Ballardian proportions. tripods litter a countryside where the country folk battle with voices and song, swatting at electric summer flies with dusty synthesisers and rabbit plugs. Not quite Ghost Box but all ghostly and unboxed. There is quiet countryside revolution afoot on these English shores if you're prepared to don your wellies and hunt that rabbit down.
