Had this on repeat! The sound of near-future reclusion, this wee insulator does battle with winter as warm currents are trapped between the breathable layers of Tim Shortell’s (of Anti-Natural / Swill Radio & Shadow Ring associations, y’see) hearty, DIGNIFIED soprano and bass clarinet, which seem more than prepared for the coming storms. Feels like a jolly, weather-ready Grandparent waiting at an unsheltered bus stop, decked-out head to toe in Gore-Tex.
Time can so easily well within “Cold”’s steady, meditative rhythm, it's poise and pacing already proving indispensable, as it carried us through one of the most stressful Royal Mail day’s ON RECORD here at the shoppe. Suspect we will be dialling into this one quite frequently, as we watch nature continue to rust and our health decline through the coming months. Brrr!
FFO: All things landscape, music on Kye or Opus One, or indeed the works of John Surman and any other badman baritones!
