Draaier – The Town That Was Murdered CD
The Town That Was Murdered is Draaier’s love/hate letter to their home town of Jarrow, an a homage to the book written by Red Ellen Wilkinson. Forgotten at best, actively dismantled at worst, Jarrow is a signifier of the treatment of Northern industrial towns. Pitch black in places but not without glimmers of hope, there is a violence and frustration that runs underneath the surface, a resentment at being ostracised.

The German Ocean – goii CD
goii (German Ocean 2) is the follow up to the Brighton post-ambient dronescape merchants’ eponymous debut. Where the first album took listeners to the cold deep seas, goii attempts to reach for the sky; the five tracks acting as an imagined map into a world of thinning oxygen and eerie silence, punctured by the external drones of engines, propellers, the rattle of mounted cannon and movements of air that sing their strange songs along to the inner voices, chants (or prayers?) of men and women experiencing the thrill and fear of altitudes their fleshy bodies were never meant to attain. The fields below are a patchwork quilt bounded by hedgerows and dotted with sheep, grazing without a care in the world or a single thought for the feats of bravery, love and bloodlust above.SKU: SBCA088
Greg Nieuwsma – In C: Flea Market CD
Flea markets are magical places. Places where you can watch inanimate reincarnation in action. Objects deemed as useless – discarded, on their way to landfills or incinerators – are given an opportunity to start anew. Terry Riley’s “In C” is a magical piece of music. It is a piece of music with no single definitive version – on the contrary, the rich variety of interpretations echo the smorgasbord of wares on display at the flea market. It is our hope that this broken-down, wabi-sabi laden take on “In C” will be seen as a worthwhile addition to the collection of versions of Terry Riley’s wonderful composition; and that someone may come across it and pick it up with the same curiosity with which they would pick up an exotic trinket at a flea market, examine it closely and, thinking they have found a treasure, say to themselves “Yes!”SKU: SBCA090
