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.

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.SKU: SBCA075
Luke Brennan – The Rush to the Sky CD
Luke Brennan is a composer and multi-instrumentalist from a seaside town called Bray in Wicklow, Ireland, now living in Hackney, east London. The Rush to the Sky comprises guitar, violin, organ, midi synth, field recordings and found sounds and was performed and constructed in both Bray and Hackney. The main inspiration came from one of the field recordings of swifts flying over Luke’s flat. He made that recording the year before and was finishing the piece a year later when those same birds were back flying overhead, giving a wonderful sense of place and time and of the season.SKU: SBCA068
