Weathered is the companion volume to epic45’s Weathering album (Sunday Times Album of the Week, July 2011). It sees the Staffordshire duo invite labelmates and contemporaries to literally weather the recordings they made for that record. Weathered will be released on Friday 6 April via Norman Records, with a digital release from Wayside & Woodland’s online shop to follow shortly after. It will be available from other retailers later in April.
What if a song recorded today could be lost like a photograph, only to be rediscovered years later? Dusty and forgotten for years, warped, faded and torn. Like an old ‘78 discovered in an attic, its history as a physical object indelibly marked and inseparable from the original recording.
Contributing artists to Weathered include The Remote Viewer, The Gentleman Losers, Fieldhead, E.L. Heath, Jasper TX and Sarah Kemp of Lanterns on the Lake/ The Declining Winter.
