Tram 1902

My debut EP is taking shape, and I now feel comfortable saying a little more about my aims. In short, I’m documenting place with music and other material, with a clear list of cities and landscapes I intend to cover.

I’ll be releasing projects under the name site/nonsite. The site is a source, a place experienced and rich with scattered information; the nonsite is a resulting document, a multimedia abstraction of that place. I’ve adapted these guiding thoughts from land artist Robert Smithson’s 1968 Theory of Non-Sites.

I’ll explain more when I release the first EP in April. In the meantime, it’d mean a lot to me if you’d follow site/nonsite on Twitter, Instagram and Bandcamp.

Be My Baby is so perfect I almost can’t believe it exists; a 3-minute miracle. I still have the 7 “that my Dad bought, worn and crackly and all the better for it. We also chose it for our first dance, so I treasure it for two reasons. Rest in peace, Ronnie.

Burial - Antidawn EP

Burial, Antidawn EP

Now that I’m making music, I appreciate Burial more than ever — in particular, Come Down To Us has become something of a lodestar. Anyway, his Antidawn EP is out today; 43 minutes of crackly, atmospheric narrative that reveals more with every listen. The release notes sum it up better than I can:

Antidawn reduces Burial’s music to just the vapours. The record explores an interzone between dislocated, patchwork songwriting and eerie, open-world, game space ambience. Antidawn seems to tell a story of a wintertime city, and something beckoning you to follow it into the night. The result is both comforting and disturbing, producing a quiet and uncanny glow against the cold. Sometimes, as it enters a ‘bad place’, it takes your breath away. And time just stops.
