matthew shaw - there was never a time when your life was not now, nor will there ever be (blackest rainbow, 2012)
Beautiful new CDR from Matthew Shaw, the man behind Tex La Homa and Apollolaan Recordings, and one half of the Blue Tree (with Andrew Paine) and Fougou (with Brian Lavelle).

This new 40 minute piece was recorded in inner city Vancouver BC (Canada), hedges in Sandbach, Cheshire (UK) Blandford Forum and surrounding Dorset countryside (UK) & Zeist and it's woods (The Netherlands), blending field recordings and instrumentation. Colour covers featuring photography by Matthew from various locations where the recording of this album took place. 80 copies.
