I have loved the band Northumbria for a long time – they’ve been going since 2011. So while I was shopping at Cryo Chamber, I decided to send them some extra money, and so these arrived today. Their most recent is VINLAND. They have their own Bandcamp page, where I’d encourage you to start, but, as I say, I picked these up through the excellent dark ambient label Cryo Chamber.

These here comprise “a trilogy inspired by the Norse discovery of Canada.” You can do what I did and buy the trilogy as a bundle, if you like. It is extremely good atmospheric ambient with notes of early Canadian post-rock glinting out of the mist from time to time.

Also, these are beautiful objects.
