About 'Circles & Holes'
Circles & Holes was recorded over 2014/2015. The premise for Circles & Holes was that I wanted to record something akin to a library music album, with short pieces again, but also something that would benefit being recorded onto tape. I wanted it to sound warm and overly fuzzed up, the opposite to the usual wintery sound I favour. I wanted it to sound warm, humid and sticky, something that reminded me of a bad fever dream summer. The smell of rotten fruit in the air and flies everywhere, decay and heat. Later on, upon reading Bruno Schulz's short story 'August' from 'Street of Crocodiles' I realised that this perfectly summed up to me very much the feeling I was trying to put across with this album. There was also the loose theme to me of circles being full, equal to life, and holes being equal to death, empty and vacant, and as such I positioned each song on the album as a circle or hole. Life or Death.
The cassettes have since sold out but I have also released this on CD-R, and it's also still available
as a digital download. I may run some cassettes again at some point.
