eris 136199 – Peculiar Velocities

“out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field I’ll meet you there” –Jalaluddin Rumi (from the liner notes) Here we are in the field, all frameworks missing, fossilised rules of engagement cracked and broken on the shard-strewn ground… Three maestr@s, three voices, with neither guidelines nor limits nor sense of ‘right’ nor…

Between COVID-19 putting a stop to touring, and Bandcamp Fridays, there’s been a lot of music released in 2020.
