A long time coming, this is the first 3" solo disc by Mr Gregory Hagan, who has been involved with two previous Thomas Carnacki discs here as well. Also a member of Common Eider King Eider and the GRALE project with Bruce Anderson, Dale and Nico Sophiea, Hagan gives us 20min of beautiful drone with many under currents and space for the mind to frolic on this debut 3" release. Electronic and subversive, this recording sheds new light in the dark hours of dark days from whence it was birthed. Highly recommended night-time listening! And some stunning hand-drawn artwork as well for both the cover and the disc itself.

Limited to 73 hand-numbered copies. As Mr Hagan expressed a distaste for round numbers, 73 is the total, not 70, not 75. Two excerpts from the whole are available for streaming on this page, and the full 19+min piece is available as a digital download as well as on the discs themselves.This is pmalcd3 13.
