Matthew Bourne - Extinction
Published 3 August 2017 by THD

Come to terms with Matthew Bourne’s ‘Extinction’. Wipe him off your endangered species list. It’s over for him now (it isn’t). Ominous, moving piano chords, and minimal cello embellishments add to the art-house film tensions. Following ‘Isotach’ and ‘Candela (For Sascha Heeney)’, this is the third track taken from Bourne’s forthcoming weather-themed album ''Isotach'', which will be released on 18th August.

Pre-order Isotach on Bandcamp or the Leaf shop. | Twitter | Facebook |

Our saviours Danalogue The Conqueror, Betamax Killer and King Shabaka bestowed upon us their debut album Channel The Spirits on April 1st 2016CE. From simpler times, this was a prophetic document. A celebration. The beginning of the end.

Here is a package that includes the debut Prophecy EP from 2015CE. Here are three previously unheard tracks: the fabled Ancient Tapes. On two compact discs. Perfect sound forever.

Matthew Bourne - Isotach album out now
Published 18 August 2017 by DM

Matthew Bourne's Isotach is released today. It marks a return to his first love, the piano. There is a meteorological theme to the album, with the recordings taking place at Bourne's rural Yorkshire home during what he describes as “extreme weather”. If you listen carefully you can hear the wind and rain picked up on the microphones, the sparse instrumentation providing the calm in the eye of the storm. Get an insight into the process courtesy of this Fractured Air interview and watch a live rendition of 'Candela (for Sascha Heeney)' below.

Isotach is available to buy on LP+CD/CD/download on Bandcamp or the Leaf shop. The audiophile vinyl edition is half-speed mastered for your listening pleasure.

You'll find it in all the usual ones and zeroes outlets. | Twitter | Facebook | Live Dates |
