The gaye device A beautiful album perfect for just sitting and watching the day drift by in a stoned haze.

Rob Clay Lovely piano led ambient album, with some guitar in places. There's a melancholy feel to it. Fans of Harold Budd will like this one. Favorite track: At Euston Square I Sat Down And Wept.

tonepoet I've already used a song from this for a mix at Spaceman's Transmissions (one so far, more to follow). Really great collaboration here, and it's nice to have 2 creative minds finding the right space between them to carve out expressive and cinematic creations like this. Highly recommended. Favorite track: King Midas In Reverse.

The brand new collaboration between myself and Daniel Land.

Watch the video for the title track: www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0qf6hITOjY

An album of quiet, beautiful songs performed on piano and guitar.

This album started life at a riverrun concert myself and Daniel performed in Manchester. During that concert we performed a track using a processed piano and guitar. We liked it a lot and decided then to make an album based around piano and guitar.

We started working on this album in January 2013 during sessions for Daniel's next solo album. We worked very quickly. It soon became apparent that we had something special on our hands - and something we are both very proud of.

We are both fans of the paintings of artist Ade Hodges, so much so that the album is named after the painting which forms the album cover. You can find more of the paintings of Ade Hodges at www.facebook.com/adehodgesartist
