Laura Cannell teams up with F&F…

We are delighted to announce that we will be working with Laura Cannell this year.  Laura will be releasing the follow-up to last year’s wonderful Quick Sparrows Over the Black Earth on F&F.

In her own words, Laura is ‘exploring the space between ancient, improvised, traditional & experimental music’. Through a series of releases, both solo and collaborations, Laura has collected a quite stunning catalogue of beautiful, timeless music primarily with fiddle, overbowed fiddle and double recorders but also percussion and other wind instruments.

Last year Kemper Norton remixed The Drowned Sacristan for Laura’s remix project Black Earth Remixes (also featuring Bass Clef, Ekoplekz, Hoofus, Luke Abbott and Hacker Farm), and the favour was returned with her incredible (and we don’t say that lightly) remix of Kemper’s Helston 91.
 
It is an absolute pleasure to be releasing Laura’s new album – more details coming soon.

Loor, Kemper Norton

We proudly present the new album from Kemper Norton – Loor, released 27.10.14.

Seen as a nocturnal and corrupted sequel to their previous album, Carn (released last year on Exotic Pylon), the album’s creation was inspired by real and imagined cities from childhood, bathed in traditional folk, found sounds and community chants, celebrations and invocations. Loor (which is Cornish for moon) represents the next ambitious transmission in the expanding audio landscape that Kemper Norton are creating.

We came across Lutine performing at Joseph Stannard’s OuterChurch last year, and were immediately mesmerised by Heather and Emma’s vocals, drawn in by the perfect songwriting. Now less than a year later and they have produced something very very special. Of course, we would say that, but take a listen…

Welcome to 2014

Happy New Year!

A huge thank you to everyone who supported us over the last year, including everyone who played, reviewed and of course bought our releases.

An especially big thank you to The Doomed Bird of Providence, and all the artists who contributed to our Collision/Detection series and The Outer Church compilation.

It was a fun year, hopefully we can do it all again in 2014 (more news very soon).

Best wishes,
Justin & Helen x
