Rough Fields – Watery Fable
Recorded in January 2011 in a flat in Tottenham, "Watery Fable" is a (thoroughly fictional) tale about the last two living members of a made-up tribe, and their ultimate abandonment of their traditional land. It's a vague parable of letting go, non-entrenchment, fluidity and moving on.
The sound sources are found objects, rescued instruments, mechanical toys, weird artefacts of analogue kit and a healthy dose of environmental recordings. The fidgety, lo-fi clicks and claps are beefed up on the B-side by Elias Linn for a bass-heavy percussive remix.
"Watery Fable" is released on digital and deluxe 7" vinyl featuring artwork by photographer Sarah Faraday. Airplay so far from Gilles Peterson, Gideon Coe, Dom Servini and SOAS; coverage in Echoes Magazine, Proper Songs, Newdust, Blind Fun and Visitation Rites.
