Presented in a jackdaw style format, this release charts the unsteady memories and shifting surroundings of protagonist Bill Plantagenet as he recovers from an alcoholic-fueled breakdown in the City Hospital. Based on Lowry’s own self admission to New York’s Bellevue in the 1930′s, our observations are presented through maps, photographs and postcards from the era, a sort of “psycho-geography”.

Deluxe limited version of 100 copies comes in the form of a”faux-rigami” pop up book of sorts, each hand bound with unique antique book covers, and including hand printed/typed inserts, and pop up pages made from the oversized sheets from a 100 year old hand written ledger… all encased in a hand made/stamped black slip case. Insanely labor intensive! See attached pics please!…
Collaborative effort between the Russian trio Night Shift, and the main man behind Finnish band Ous Mal, Olli Aarni. An incredibly inventive sampledelic mash up of Russian folk melody, filmic referenced dialogue, field recordings and crushed and twisted electronic nuances, this cerebrally manipulative release is not one to be missed!
Night Shift and Olli Aarni have made a record that is dramatic and playful, is woozy with histories ,and sharp with awareness of its own strengths. Track it down while you can, highly recommended. – Fluid Radio
