Ambient drone reggae! The drums are really "in your face". Are they close mic'ed?
If you've got nothing to do, don't do it here.

Aye that's it in a nutshell really! I shy away from using the "r" word though, we're a bunch of white guys, don't want to scare people off!

The drums are a bit too loud probably, we recorded the music by just sticking 2 mics up in a room. We've got plans to record on an 8-track soon though, so we'll still get to record live but able to mix better & get a better balance hopefully.

Finally got another track done:
"Dunted" is an exceedingly glum rapid clarinet krautastrophe based around 100% banging Jaki LiebeDrozd beat from Mike Graham. Summer 2014

"Bud Neill" is for Bud Neill, Bud Powell, Harold Budd & Rio.

Bonus points to anyone who knows who Bud Neill is.

Three tracks that sound like they belong together...

Chill Yr Boots is a cut-up electronica version of the recording of me writing Bud Neill.
And Bud Neill is the finished version of the unedited piano jam that Chill Yr Boots was assembled from.
Old Smoke is has nothing to do with any of that but it sounds like it might.

All recorded in my living room & shed over the last wee while... what a time to be alive.

Big Cloud have had our EP out online for a while but on Friday we launched the physical release... literally launched it.

Very strong north-easterly winds caused the EPs to launch no bother so if you're situated anywhere between Falkland and Norway keep an eye out for a copy.
