The A-Lords unleash their debut LP. Primarily Michael Tanner (Plinth) and Nicholas Palmer (Directorsound), the band perversely straddle elaborate instrumental music and longer, gloomier pieces. The bulk of their songs were recorded in a barn at night on the Dorset/Devonshire border. Each song is a very slow and deliberate paean to the oft maligned (and rightly so) fields of Dorset. The first batch were improvised on summer days spent in gardens, churches and a lovely old wooden summerhouse. The second set of songs made themselves known over two nights in a rusty old barn during Harvest Festival. Microphones were placed in trees outside and under the floorboards, making the tunes regretfully creak into life. The album, comprised of four tracks from their out-of-print Barl Fire EP and six new songs, arrives as a 180 gram vinyl LP with a CD-R of the whole album.
