If you go to the beeb site and check back through Gideon Coe’s last couple of shows you’ll hear a lovely mention about ‘May Your Heart be The Map’ as part of ‘Reissue Corner’ on 6 music also ‘The Stars In Spring’ got a play last night.
So big heartfelt thanks to Mr Coe!
Also of note are the July Skies plays, which you should all know are another band we love, seeing as Ben & Rob of epic45 play in the live line-up. So a great show all round.
‘May Your Heart Be The Map’ is still available to purcahse here and here
We have carefully curated a compilation of unheard and unreleased material featuring label favourites; epic45, My Autumn Empire, Field Harmonics, EL Heath and Component#4 and joining the label for a release or two in the coming year; The Arm (a midlands noise trio active in the early 00s), Oliver Cherer (Dollboy), They Go Boom!! (90s indie-popsters) and Mark Van Hoen (Seefeel founder member & Locust).
All artists on featured on this compilation created the music from the comfort of their own homes, with as much emphasis on experimentation as there is on having the ‘right’ equipment; making do with what is in front of them and crafting unique sounds. It’s about carving beauty from limitation and experience, then sonically painting scenes from memory with hopefully resonating results.
‘A Wayside and Woodland Compilation: Bedrooms, Fields & Houses’ will be available for free with purchases of new releases.
