I received a copy of this album a week or two ago and hadn’t sat and listened to it properly, last night I played it during my walk to Marske where I was meeting a friend for a pint. When I arrived at the pub the album hadn’t finished so I kept on walking. The whole album is a stone-cold kosmische killer, the dub track, An Interior, was a total surprise and is just brilliant. The best new album I’ve heard this year.

This soundtracked my walk from Redcar to Saltburn today, it’s a bit good.
A message from Oli
Happy Bandcamp no-fees day! I made a new EP and its out today so i can raise the funds to replace my 8-track machine which has all but died after 15 years hard labour. So if you wanna buy it, do it today as all the money goes to the artists for the rest of the day. Its pay what you like so all donations are welcome, and if you are skint and still want it, well thats ok too!
Space is the place
This is arguably the worst photograph I have posted on this blog but I love it. I arrived home a few days ago and have been keen to try and capture this image. Unfortunately I don’t really have any experience of photographing the night sky and have been unable to practice because the skies have been completely clouded-out since arriving home. Tonight’s sky was cloudless but I only had a limited time to try and capture an image before the moon rose. The green dot in the middle of the image is Comet 46P/Wirtanen.
Ivan the Tolerable & Friends
One thing I love about an Ivan the Tolerable/Year of Birds release is that you never really know what you are going to get. Their latest album, Autodidact, is a dense, swirling, cinematic slab of kosmische beauty. It is a thing of wonder, a triumph.
