about

MARTYN BATES and ALAN TRENCH, energised by the hugely positive critical reception of the recent “Insect Silence” album (also available via Final Muzik), deliver an extraordinary new set of songs showcasing both virtuoso songwriting and an impeccable selection of covers.

From the stunning interpretation of Black Sabbath’s “Planet Caravan” that opens this missive from the aethyr, to the darkly beautiful haunted whisperings of “Wistman’s Wood” that closes it, Bates and Trench take us on a musical tour of their mystical landscape that leaves the traveler breathless and transported. Bates’ voice, at once urgent and impassioned, delicate and graceful, is underpinned by an eclectic instrumentation of dulcimers, synths, piano, organ, mellotron, shruti and others that highlight the interplay of Trench’s fluid guitar lines with the soaring melodies. The recent folk history of England is incorporated with covers of songs by Alasdair Clayre, Bob Pegg (Mr. Fox) and Vashti Bunyan; the album revolves elliptically around the elegiac rush of the title track, where Bates sings: “the seas ride up the skies/and the stars fill yr eyes/I dream the rain’s long answer/I dream the sun’s responses”.

Recorded and mixed over a period of less than three months between Nuneaton in England and Evia in Greece, this is TWELVE THOUSAND DAYS finest work to date!

Presented in a beautiful digipak design with lyrics included. Limited edition of 500 copies. FM 26
