Released: 21st Jun 2019


Cracking open the seemingly embalmed pastoral history of the hills just north of this very shop, ghostly folk, electronics, and Hopper’s wending language all twirl together to illuminate a hidden past buried beneath the Downs.

A poetical, autobiographical and psychogeographical account of Hopper’s experiences at Chanctonbury Ring on the West Sussex Downs. The album is a blend of folk, electronic music, poetry, prose and environmental sound. Kraus’s electro-acoustic soundscapes and songs interweave with Hopper’s rich, intimate narration. Musically it moves effortlessly from the traditional to the avant-garde with Belbury Poly contributing music and production throughout and bookending the work with a memorable theme tune.
