simonotron Just delightful. Al Green once sang "How can you mend a broken heart?" Listening to this album will do the trick.

Max Winter It is a holistic masterpiece, a universe in which every single world created by each song can exist in harmony. It has something calmly energetic and therefore a motivating and driving effect. Like to listen to it on the way to the supermarket. Favorite track: Mu-D.

  • Sounds For Isolated Souls (limited upfront Bandcamp only edition with signed print)
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Other Lands proudly presents the first release on his own label: Circles And Phases.

    Having put out music under a number of names in years gone by on labels such as Firecracker Recordings, Athens Of The North, Pulp, Rush Hour and more, this new imprint has been created initially to release a wealth of material that has accumulated over time - starting with this first release: Sounds For Isolated Souls.

    A collection of meditative, genre fluid pieces performed, recorded and produced entirely by Other Lands himself across an unspecified period, all connected by the same playful, semi improvised approach that has always been a key facet of his music.

    Originally released via Bandcamp in March 2020, the hope was that this collection of tracks would appeal to those more discerning folk looking for some deep and introspective sounds to fill their homes with. Purposely programmed pieces, designed to promote peace.

    Following a most favourable reception from numerous happy listeners - several of whom enquired as to the possibility of a vinyl version - it was decided that the time was at last right to do the decent thing and get a record label off the ground, making this music a physical reality.

    A few encouraging words from friends in the business, some helpful connections made, a lovely remaster for wax courtesy of good pal & sometime collaborator Linkwood, numerous delays later - turns out getting records made is a lengthy process - and the finished article has finally appeared.

    Circles And Phases seeks produce further fruits in the coming seasons, whether from the archives of Other Lands or from other music making friends. This is just the first phase, with many more sonic circles to come.

    A handful of copies are now available here on Bandcamp for preorder, to ship a week in advance of the general release date of the 3rd of September, when standard copies should begin to appear in regular record retail outlets.

    These upfront copies will come with an exclusive Giclee print reproduction of the cover art, originally painted in acrylic on canvas by Other Lands Jr. - a.k.a. Eva Sutherland.
