I’m pleased to share this piece of music with you: ’Night Bike’ is taken from my forthcoming LP ‘Music For A Flat Landscape’, which is the soundtrack to the film ’The Goob’, out end of the month.

Music For A Flat Landscape LP released 25th May – pre order now!

I’m very pleased and excited to tell you that my new LP, Music For A Flat Landscape – Original Soundtrack to ‘The Goob’ will be released on Monday, 25th May on my new (own) label, Buffalo Temple.

The record will be out on heavyweight 180g vinyl (limited to 500 copies) and also digitally.

If you’d like to pre-order it, you can do so at these places (and others too, support your preferred independent retailer!)

Drift Records: // Rough Trade: // Normans: // Record Store:

In the meantime, you can still check out the trailer that features music from the soundtrack here:

PLUS, this release was originally slated for Record Store Day, but unfortunately, due to a manufacturing delay (because of Record Store Day) we had to delay the release date. However, we’ll still be marking said day by giving away a signed test pressing of the record over here on Facebook. Just do a ‘like’ and we’ll choose one at random!

Music For A Flat Landscape: Original Soundtrack for ‘The Goob’

So, I did a sound track for a film called ‘The Goob’, it’s a small-budget UK indy film. I was planning to release the soundtrack for record store day, BUT we’ve had manufacturing delays BECAUSE of record store day.

I’m still going to release this record, expect it towards the end of may (once the pressing plants have had time to recover from pressing all the ed sheeran ginger vinyl, or whatever it is they do). The record will be on Buffalo Temple, a new label I’ve set up, and there should be more happening with that in the near future too.

In the meantime, here’s a pic of the cover and a trailer for the film, which should be in all good cinemas (small art house ones anyway) in May.

I contributed a remix for this free download EP by Laura Cannell, which you can get here.

Each track takes a fragment of medieval music and is then turned into something new. It’s well worth checking out, and also I encourage you to explore more of Laura’s work over at www.lauracannell.co.uk.
