John Cratchley Not new but timeless...take time to savour the slowly evolving musical contours that spread out around you.
Open spaces,distant echoes...ethereal interjections.
There are both aural connections and contradictions (just as it should be) but the breeze seems to sit firmly in the East (as Glenn Jones' sitar would suggest).
Tribal drums may accompany the pagan ritual Death of the Sun but it will surely rise again of hope and renewal,I think (and full of intricate beauty)...
Favorite track: Bellevue Bridge.

Death of the Sun is the 5th - and final - studio album from Cul de Sac. Taking a cue from two tape-based pieces from their collaboration with John Fahey (The Epiphany of Glenn Jones), the band set out on a new path informed by their experience. By virtue of Trussell's modern electronics, augmenting analog wizard Robin Amos' role, a new approach to creating the music unfolded. Samples form the backbone of the album, the blueprint of the tunes. As the foundation became increasingly electronic-oriented, Cul de Sac responded with acoustic textures, and the juxtaposition works magically, a seamless integration. Their masterpiece.
