ALL IS QUIET AT THE ANCIENT THEATRE: Alison Cotton
Five longish, haunting, folk/drone/early-music pieces. It’s strange to me how the whole “New Weird Britain” thing “happened” to mainstream attention during a long period where I’d been ruminating on just that, in private, without having my head up long enough to see where things were going. And now, all these wonderful sounds are filling me and guiding me. This is a superb set.
Note also THE BLACKENING, by Cotton and Michael Tanner.
