Again, after a brief hiatus there are two new releases on our Bandcamp netlabel this month.
Three Parade Reductions by Hardworking Families is a triptych based on a live recording from the Newhaven-Dieppe festival five years ago, using tape recorder and feedback delay to record / document a parade of festival participants from the port of Newhaven up to the hill to the Fort. It’s an impressionistic take on what was a multi-faceted event.
Hardworking Families (Tom Bench) has previously released material on Glistening Examples, Beartown, Eminent Observer and Don’t Drone Alone, as well as various self-releases. ‘It’s all about the textures’, says Tom.

Spirit of Gravity also presents two new tracks from Cookie written and recorded to sound like early electronic music emulating sounds of an imagined future. The pieces portray opposing visions of a future from the past: one dystopian, one utopian.
The first track Futures from the Past features predictions from the children of 1966 of a time 50 years in the future.
The second track London Transit presents a rose-tinted view of the technology used to keep London moving in the early 70s
PLUS, 2 new bonus tracks have been added to this release, Futures from the Brass, and Futures from the Brass (instrumental) – so check back in to download these new additions.
