We donated the first lump sum, £170, accrued from our compilation We Make Our Own Mythologies the other day - a huge thank you to everyone who's bought the album so far. That of course is still very much available, 20 STN favourites for at least £3, all proceeds to Macmillan Cancer Support. One of those represented, Under Alien Skies, have unveiled a new track from their currently WIP third EP and it's the usual stew of post-AnCo unsettled dreaminess. This time things seeming a little clearer, if you can say that about all the ideas the duo clearly continue to harbour, as alternately skylarking and grumbling synths give way to hazed out, hypnotic majestic skimming across a landscape of broken beats, chilled out nearly shoegaze layers and an underpinning folkish sensibility. The usual, then.
