Something special from out of the UK. Jon Collin produces haunting experimental guitar picking lushness. From our friends at “Eiderdown Records”

All good. Loving 1 & 4
No FCC’s (Instrumentals)

1) Skane March (6.36) Sparse churning atmospherics (it takes 40 seconds to get going - With field recordings to finish)
2) Snake Road (4.07) More lively in a downbeat way. Low-key spacey sounds with a rich psychedelic quality.
3) The Lark In The Morning (7.40) Getting grittier. Faster paced with plenty of feedback charged energy. Last 20 seconds very quiet fade.
4) Furniture Makers Medley (19.36) 2 minute field recordings to start us off. Everyday sounds with a droney whirr building up. Intimate, yet grinds away noisily at times. 9-minute mark begins a monumental barrage - 10:40 would be a natural place to fade if time is against you. Stay for the full 19 minutes though. Last 9 minutes is more of a soundtrack to the noir-est of film noir tales.
