The Old Magic & sister-album The Other Side Of The River have arrived ;)

The Old Magic CD has just arrived, and is ready for release. For those of you reading her IT IS in fact released– I’ve pretty much dispensed with the idea of a release date (though the official date and digital release are 2 Aug 2016) as I’m a one-man band, not a business. Getting them out there will enable me to pay for Redroom 019 (7JK ‘Ride The Solar Tide’), do stuff like eating, fund my plan to row England nearer to Europe and attaching it, and clear space in the Redroom stockroom.

The Other Side Of the River is the sister-album to The old Magic, and will be a strictly limited to 500 copies, never re-pressed. The Old Magic CD brings together and develops the digital EP series, Lietuva, Norse and Briton into a cohesive whole. Most are newly recorded to fit seamlessly together as an album. The mood is firmly set in Roman Britain. (Or is it?) And more confrontational and hypnotic than previously. The Other Side Of the River CD includes all other tracks from the digital series, and original EP full-length versions. Some old faves here, too, reworked for 2016.

These are on sale NOW in my shop, here, as a pair. I’m not broadly advertising it yet, this is just for those of you who know to come here 🙂

Hope you’ll like these new works.
