Charles Vaughan // Pylon Reveries // The Plot Thickens…

In the early hours of this morning, we received a fax from musician/explorer Charles Vaughan offering explanation as to the delay in releasing Pylon Reveries, one of the many collections of music from Charles’ private tape archive. We feel this only thickens the mystery. Message reads:

*Reason for delay: master tapes damaged by damp (difficult to avoid down here). Have been drying them out in an abandoned glass house, nearby. Been there a good while now, should hopefully be dry now. Will forward as soon as possible*

This video was meant to be published a while back. Stay tuned for further announcements.

My Autumn Empire // Tape Folk…

Some words from Ben :

“Around mid 2013, whilst I was working on The Visitation, my computer decided to go to sleep and not wake up, like they sometimes do.

They have remained unreleased ‘til now but I thought I’d throw a couple up here for the hell of it…”
