WHAT THE COVER LOOKS LIKE:
WHAT THE RELEASE NOTES SAY:
"The music we make has become place based, it happens here. Perhaps it could only happen here. It grows from connections, mistakes, intrusions, exploration. These are chance moments - the coincidence of a blackcap’s song amidst feedback sounds, a folk song as a helicopter passes, the rhythm of strings against a summer’s thunderstorm".
And as John Cage puts it, recordings of such chance moments are “… of no more value than a postcard”.
Postcards then. From Godley Moor. With Love.
The album will be released as digital download only accompanied by a strictly limited edition of 50 7”x5” art cards. The art cards will be posted out with the first 50 download orders.
The collection of 8 cards are a combination of original poetry, text and artwork printed on 100% recycled, uncoated 350gsm unbleached card. There are 50 sets of these cards, and when they're gone, they're gone.
Should you wish to burn off a copy of the album yourself* you can tuck it in amongst the postcards for safe keeping.
All profits from the sales will go to Global Greengrants (www.greengrants.org/who-we-are/) - supporting solutions for those whose lives are impacted by environmental harm and social injustice.
*streaming an album over the internet more than 27 times will likely use more energy than it takes to produce and manufacture a CD - www.bbc.com/future/article/20190207-why-streaming-music-may-be-bad-for-climate-change.
