Joe Acheson conjures an intricate yet expansive world of sound, built around a diverse collection of birdsong & other field recordings on this, their 3rd album.

Rich in detail & character, these snapshots intertwine with bass, drums, percussion & eclectic instruments, including piano, electro-harp, zither, Turkish mey & cello. A dripping drainpipe in Innsbruck, an extractor fan in Tallinn & wildlife in the Outer Hebrides, sit alongside cutlery, crockery & a fizzing gin & tonic in Brighton. Excerpts from sessions with many musicians, their influences ranging from Shetland folk music to abstract experimental soundtrack work. Fans of Bonobo, Cinematic Orchestra, portico (quartet) or go go penguin should check this out for sure.
