Happy Halloween folks,
As has become tradition on this date for Wayside and Woodland, we have some unexpected but exciting news about the latest addition to our long-running ‘Haunted Woodland’ series…
Last year’s release by Charles Vaughan was supposed to be the final instalment but then our good friends Surfacing were commissioned by the art organisation Ordinary Culture to write and perform a work inspired by Dukes Wood – an area of woodland in central Nottinghamshire that was home to the UK’s first commercial oilfield – and it seemed like too good an opportunity to pass up.
Across four gurgling, spluttering tracks of broken occult techno and ghostly industrial noise, Surfacing delve deep into the eerie beauty of Dukes Wood. Here, nature is explored not as a restorative refuge from modern life, but as a dark ecology central to (and threatening) our civilization.
The three parts of ‘Black Corpse of the Sun’ were recorded live at Dukes Wood; ‘Oilmuzak’ was recorded at Surfacing’s HQ in Nottingham.
The limited edition 50 copy pressing of the 4 Track CDr in card sleeve with booklet is available to pre-order* now via our online shop.
