Cranes - Particles & Waves (2004)

OK. I’m being right up front here. Give me actual, physical media over streaming any day.

I reached for a randomly chosen CD this evening, put it in my repurposed Oppo Blu-ray transport and immersed myself in its warm, earthy, organic texture and sonic splendor.

I really don’t know what’s happened, but God these CDs are sounding so good. This absolute gem from Portsmouth siblings, Jim and Alison Shaw et al, is a stunning, slightly ethereal/surreal experience.

These random selections are coming up trumps every time.

One of the finds of my recent trip to Wellington was this amazing record. Very tastefully remastered, individually numbered and pressed on gold and black vinyl, it is physically, visually and sonically a thing of great beauty.
