Wayside And Woodland 2008. W&W001
This is a rather handsome and extremely limited (300 copies) single from the local (to me) ambient post-rock outfit, Epic 45. I don’t know a massive amount about the band – I caught a gig a few years back (maybe at the Supersonic Festival) and have bought stuff now and again ever since. It was only when I looked this up on Discogs that I realised how prolific they’ve been…
This is a fantastic single, really cinematic and not unlike Boards Of Canada, but there are bits of Felt, Sigur Ros (without the bombast) in there as well. These are remixes, but I don’t have the originals, so I don’t know how radical they are.
Further listening? Well I really rate Weathering from 2011 which is still available, or In All The Empty Houses. Their more limited stuff (like this 12″) is self released here.
