New family members Loris S. Sarid & Innis Chonnel summon a long-overdue return to the 12th Isle with an album built around percussive sounds taken from various mic-ed up objects found in a wood workshop on the East Coast of Scotland. With the pair occasionally leaving said workshop to enjoy some respite in Innis Chonnel’s horse box / studio, the artists hatched a plan to process and program their field recordings, later combining them with improvised synthesiser rhythms and overdubs. The tracks began to materialise over the course of a few follow-up sessions by which time saws sang and flutes flowed through watering cans. Shortly afterwards they found their way to us via carrier pigeon on a CD-ROM that smelt vaguely of soiled hay and we knew we had to act.
With the help of an old reel to reel and the tape bounce & mastering work of Murray Collier, we present them here in their final format.

I've not had the mind lately to enjoy a lot of neo-classical as I have in the past. Much of it has felt too pretty, too sculpted, or too formulaic for my taste. Enter Steven Legget's Bathhouse to help me regain some feelings for the genre. Much like Sebastian Mullaert's 'Natthall' (2020), Bathhouse sidewinds through lush textural backdrops, melodies that hang suspended before your eyes, and unexpected moments of rhythm that feel very much a part of the landscape.
