    Full length CD album from Jerome aka Message to Bears, Oxfords premiere ambient folker. Here he brings us 10 tracks of his gorgeous acoustic guitar driven melancholy, begining with the the aptly titled "Running Through Woodland", the track sets a menacing pace with layers of guitars and cellos. "Hidden Beneath" is driven by a stomping pulse and delightful percussion. Plenty of glock action and viola sweeps, uplifting choral vocals and delicate piano lines, this is Jerome at his finest yet, showcasing a brilliant melodic ability, combing classical instrumentation into a folk/pop structure taking cues from bands such as Explosions in the Sky. This is an album that will leave you speechless every time you listen as you uncover new hidden details, textures and melodies. I couldn't be prouder to release this.

    dead pilot records is a short run, diy/cdr label run solely by myself. so far there has been releases from Operations, A Genuine Freakshow, Cam Deas and Stray Ghost. there is a split series in the works too, the first of which was between two masters of drone/noise, Red Needled Sea and Appes. in the works is a re-release of a stunning free download album by Lähtö,Shadows Of What We Were (Re-Release) . in actual fact, that is out in a matter of days. it features 3 bonus tracks and the first 20 versions come with a set of photographs by Lähtö himself and special artwork by my friend James Laurie. due out out also in a matter of days is a wonderfully diy/lofi acoustic album by Me With Others. after woulds is an album by an amazing artist, The Doom Riot. …
