Tracklist: The Magic Lantern - Cut From Stone

One listen to the plaintiveness and cavaco (a four-stringed exotic relative of the ukelele) of The Magic Lantern and you'd be forgiven for imagining earnest tiny bearded young men in waistcoats. That's as maybe, but they're actually associated with the F-IRE Collective, as are Polar Bear, The Invisible and Kit Downes Trio, and debut album A World In A Grain Of Sand is produced by Brian Eno collaborator Leo Abrahams. Another listen to this cut reveals some delicate arrangements on underneath the insistent drum brushing - clarinet, cello - and some very English pastorialism.
