Northerner "End Of The Holiday"


Martin Cummings AKA Northerner debuted in 2008 with ‘There’ll Be Other Holidays’ and ten years later returns to similar themes with his third album for Home Assembly ‘End Of The Holiday’. Influenced by travels to Catalan areas of Spain, the album finds Cummings at his most reflective and sonorous. The electronic ticks of his earlier ‘I Am On Your Side’ LP have been pared back somewhat but instead fit neatly in and around his expressive guitar playing.

It’s hard to talk about a Northerner album without mentioning Vini Reilly. The shadow of the Durutti Column guitarist hangs softly over the eight pieces here. The opening track ‘Principi’ sets the tone with gliding atmospherics, exquisite arpeggios and understated beats, followed by the sweetly melancholic ‘Final D’Estiu’ which ups the tempo and beefs up the rhythms until ‘Dijous with it’s shuffling bossamba flow, cements the albums Balearic appeal. But there are other influences at play here too, something of Emeralds guitar whizz Mark McGuire can be heard in the intricate guitar embellishments and cavernous, brooding tension of ‘Nomes Jo’.

Elsewhere, the dusty bump of ‘Una Nocio’ conjures up hazy memories of early evening, poolside liveners and the widescreen ambience of ‘Arribant Al Final’ could be the soundtrack to an arid coastal drive. But before we start getting all a bit too holiday brochure, really ‘End Of The Holiday’ is an album for reflection, for change, an all instrumental ode to half remembered summers, a sound collage of a faded July postcard, it is a reminder of warmer climes, long summer days recollected fondly, as autumn slides into winter.

The Declining Winter "Belmont Slope"

https://homeassemblymusic.bandcamp.com/ ... nt-slope-2
The Declining Winter return after a three year lay off with what is perhaps their strongest statement to date.

Pushing on from the pastoral blueprint of the long sold out ‘Home For Lost Souls’ (2015),‘Belmont Slope’ is a bold and varied album, extending the boundaries of their earlier sound, introducing pop sensibilities and daring electronic flourishes.

Truly a Northern English album, Belmont Slope is a haphazard car ride across the M62, a love letter to the hills of Yorkshire and Lancashire, a paean to desolate beauty, unattainable love and lost friends.

The Declining Winter is the brainchild of Hood co-founder Richard Adams, an ever changing collective who emerge blinking into the daylight from their Yorkshire enclave with a unique blend of pastoral and lo-fi pop, shimmering electronics and rural post-rock.

Crikey - that one takes me back a bit. I was never much of a fan at the time but enjoyed them second time around.
