The Restless Field review-Electronic Sound magazine-issue 30-photograph

Finlay Milligan reviewed the album in issue 30 of Electronic Sound magazine:

“…rips up the green grass of the idyllic countryside and forces you to consider the darker undergrowth. Beautifully unnerving stuff.”

The print issue is sold out but the PDF is still available. Visit that here.

The England Project-logo masthead

A consideration of the album can also be found amongst the explorations and wanderings of The England Project.

“…utilising the drone, a modern musical phenomena with an ancient pedigree. They emerge from a world of the Radiophonic Workshop and the soundtracks of the hauntological and psychogeographic.”

Visit that here.

Evening Of Light-Cloudscape 70-logo

Tracks from the album by Field Lines Cartographer and A Year In The Country can be found amongst the rather fine audio selections of Odile Strik’s Evening Of Light Cloudscape #70.

Visit that here.

And finally Field Line Cartographer’s Ghosts of Blood & Iron was played at The Unquiet Meadow by St. Cyprian and Ms. Pryscilla Atropine on Asheville FM as part of their journeys “…through psych-tinged landscapes of mutated folk & haunted electronica”.

The Restless Field-A Year In The Country-dawn editions opened

The Restless Field is a study of the land as a place of conflict and protest as well as beauty and escape; an exploration and acknowledgment of the history and possibility of protest, resistance and struggle in the landscape/rural areas, in contrast with sometimes more often referred to urban events.

It takes inspiration from flashpoints in history while also interweaving personal and societal myth, memory, the lost and hidden tales of the land.

The album contains audiological explorations by Field Lines Cartographer, Vic Mars, Bare Bones, Assembled Minds, Grey Frequency, Endurance, Listening Center, Pulselovers, Sproatly Smith, Polypores, Depatterning, Time Attendant, A Year In The Country and David Colohan.

Listen to clips/tracks from the album at our Soundcloud page and at the album’s Bandcamp page.

Further details on the album can be found here.
