This is a second pressing of the long sold out collaboration between Vancouver-based musician Scott Morgan as Loscil and Newcastle Upon Tyne based Paul Elam as Fieldhead. Both musicians are known for creating droning icy soundscapes. Loscil has previously released a series of well-regarded albums on Kranky citing krautrock greats Cluster, Gavin Byars and a wealth of film composers as influence.
Fieldhead has released two albums of textured soundscapes marked by tape hiss and haunted loops on the Home Assembly and Gizeh labels. This new album showcases superb examples of each composers work and was initially sold on a joint tour but was almost immediately unavailable.

This is a magic collaboration in the form of Loscil and Fieldhead, just the idea of these two drone giants Scott Morgan and Paul Elam bashing their heads together completely fills me with joy. The outcome is sublime, with minimal glitchy beats over delicately crunchy noise it’s a fine slab of ambience that’s surrounding my head this afternoon. On second track ‘Home’ we’re treated to a hypnotic heartbeat with clicks and scratches that bring to mind the early Skam recordings of Bola, ‘Helluland’ is a near classical mood shifter with dark synths and industrial throbs more reminiscent of Nils Frahm.
Gizeh Records always manage to put out some fantastic sounds on their roster and this is nothing short of divine, with a perfect balance of mood and texture and just the right amount of melody for it to stand out from the masses of minimal soulless drone out there.
