Gorgeous wintry electronics. A Rest Before the Walk blends the radiophonic atmosphere of bygone TV horrors with an icy, digital folk sensibility.
The fourth self-released album from pscycho geographical electronics investigator Keith Seatman. This outing was inspired by walks and sessions at the Devon studio of folk singer Douglas E. Powell, who provides vocals on two tracks here (Powell's new album Good Men Get Lost at Sea also comes highly recommended)
The album has been getting extensive airplay on BBC6 music. Its officially released next week but there's a batch available in the Ghost Box Guest Shop right now.
It’s far from easy listening, but it washes over you like a fever dream and captivates the senses.
The Parish Council very much enjoyed a screening of Andrew Kötting's By Ourselvesin the Belbury New Spirit Hall yesterday. A psycho-documentary-drama about the poet John Clare's 80 mile asylum escape from Essex to Northamptonshire in 1841.
Our parishioners should be persuaded by the involvement of the following remarkable people:
Iain Sinclair, Freddie Jones, Toby Jones, Alan Moore, Jem Finer, Macgillivray, Stewart Lee and a straw bear.
The film can be seen in selected cinemas and online herenow.
