after much long toil in darkest seclusion, and after much long subsequent behind the scenes activity, might we finally officially announce that the wonderful limited edition vinyl version of the new murmur breeze album is at last upon us. a thing of musical and tactile beauty indeed, taking in twelve songs of spiraling surrealist alt-rap, displaying both james p honey and abSUrd at the height of their powers.
entitled 'foreshore reverie', and featuring a host of collaborators, the album is awash with a staggering amount of wonderful musical turns and closely cut lyrical observations, deftly maneuvering between the bitingly satirical and the wildly theatrical. auxiliary musical accompaniment comes in the form of performances from jamie romain, michael rea and nadia d'alò, whilst extra lyrical turns are taken by the mighty mildew, babel fishh and jamesreindeer, and the whole album carefully guided through the mixing stages by jamesreindeer.
gladly brought to reality in co-operation with the marvelous cooler than cucumbers records, the limited edition vinyl is a thing of true beauty indeed. featuring full-colour artwork by james p honey and loaded with a few splendid treats within its interior, not to mention a wonderful shiny black slab of vinyl featuring the most choicest selections from the album with added room to breathe within compositions. be sure to get involved...
