2012: a soundtrack of immutable quality.
I managed to blot out the sound of rooks
circling high above the substation and the distant
choral white noise of the ocean for a few minutes
to fall in love with these gems.

1.The Ghosts of Bush by Robin the Fog
Ghosts of Bush is a stunningly immersive work that, brick by brick, built a sonic cathedral around my ears. Surfaces and textures evolve from disparate pieces into a living, breathing thing. The biological memory of a space, the fleshy interpretation of a sonic event, recorded and experienced. I’m struggling to describe how captivating it is, but Simon Reynolds has described this as the ‘ultimate Hauntological artefact’. Which is pretty much what I have been trying to say, but phrased in a more perceptive and astute manner, obviously.
