As usual with Time Released Sound you get two versions of this. A digipack retailing at under a tenner and a limited edition at over £30. At just 75 copies and composed of original pages from a 100 year old book on the work of the obscure 15th century printer and illustrator, Anton Sorg its probably pretentious enough to provoke interest to justify such a price tag.
The music is pleasant interplay between treated piano, affected guitar and what the sleeve advises is alto sax but I’ve not heard any yet (thankfully). ‘Recorded in gale force winds’ it says, and there’s something as lonely and lonesome of being trapped in a lighthouse on a stormy night about the compositions. They ebb and flow like the tide battering away on the sea walls at Seahouses.
Its reminding us of the Harold Budd and Brian Eno album ‘Ambient 2; The Plateaux of Mirror’, a constant roll of piano with improvised guitar providing deeply atmospheric music that has a dark edge to it. That alto sax I mentioned earlier has just appeared and its as discordant as ever so I’m off for a lie down.
