Here are some positive words on our new record so far:
“It not only brims with startling invention, but is likely to put them on the map as go-to soundtrackers of urban-life melancholy, alongside the likes of not-so anonymous beat trafficker Burial and Brian Eno-collaborator Jon Hopkins”
“Back with a bang, really exciting new album”
Jez Nelson, BBC R3’s Jazz On 3

So the last one in the takeaway series was recorded with the master of sound, Brian Eno. It’s a song about the area I(seb) live in. Hope you enjoy it.
The single also features Underworld’s Karl Hyde and a remix from Polar Bear’s Tom Herbert.
You can hear and buy the single on the bandcamp page.
Has been an amazing experience making these tracks every month, sharing creative time with so many people I admire and love as people.
I’m grateful to The Leaf Label for their support and patience with me and to john for mastering all the tracks.
I’m excited to say that all 12 singles will be available on a 24-track, double CD next March. More news soon…
Hope you all had an amazing Christmas and wish you a happy and fulfilling new year!
