We’ve finally managed to score copies of this after it being out of print for a short while.
What we get is a CD and A5 book set which is like some sort of eccentric English occult bedtime story set. There’s a whole lot of action here from dark psychedelic folk to paranoid spoken word, black humour, satanic stuff and so on. It’s an overwhelming amount to digest on the first session, but it seems to have a thumbs up from all the folks in the office and the book is a great size to keep by the side of the loo if you’re that way inclined. Personally I completely disapprove of such unhygienic activity.
So, yeah, think everything from Current 93 to Chris morris’s Jam and then some.
9/10 Dr.Salt Customer review, 4th February 2014
Where to begin with this gem of a record. Starting with the slow mournful "the dangerous gift" all swathes of synths and pulsing layers with the gorgeous vocals of Kate Renwick. This album covers many moods and evokes all kinds of emotions within me, at times stark, and beautiful then powerful and ominous.Thematically It merges fact and fiction seamlessly to construct new narratives from the assembled elements, the occult the esoteric and magick nestle alongside historical events. The stand out track for me is track 4 which has at its centre a spoken narrative with a slowly repeating monk like chant just underneath, it develops into a truly unsettling and atmospheric experience. This is a work to lose yourself in, revealing its depth and secrets with each successive listen, a blend of folk, electronica,field recordings and much more. We'll crafted songs that lodge themselves in your mind and crave your attention.It comes with a 60 page paperback book that sheds some light on the themes covered, and asks as many questions as it answers.A great package and an intriguing release , if you ask a little more from your music then this will more than satisfy.
