The Northwestern Series – PENDLE001

The CD version of ‘Nature Recordings’ is now out.


1. The Man Who Invented Himself
2. Lillian, I Love You
3. Dawn Rain / Grissom Aloft
4. The Archaeologist
5. The Eighth Tower (part I)
6. The Eighth Tower (part II)
7. The Eighth Tower (part III)
8. The Eighth Tower (part IV)

Most of the record is sang and played by me, but the exasperatingly gifted Steven Collins of The Owl Service helped me out with the music for ‘Lillian’, and drone authority Pat Gubler (aka P.G. Six) helped me out with various parts of The Eighth Tower suite. It’s the most cohesive thing I’ve ever produced and I’m really pleased with it.

Nigel at The Northwestern Series has done an outstanding job with the packaging. It really does look amazing. Thanks so much for everything Nigel.

Each package contains: a compact disc in a recycled kraft card inner sleeve with rubber stamp titling; four seasonal ‘Tower’ inserts designed by Dom Cooper [risograph printed on recycled card with soya ink]; dried Hydrangea petals from my garden; a letterpressed, hand-numbered insert by Phil McMullen of the Ptolemaic Press – all housed in a custom gold text ‘Northwestern Series’ green cardboard carton from Conifer Handmades.

Strictly limited to 300 copies.

It’s available to buy now from The Northwestern Series, Rough Trade, Piccadilly Records, Norman Records, and others – or direct from me (BUY).

Finally, I’d like to thank David A. Jaycock for suggesting I get in touch with Folk Police / Northwestern in the first place about this release. Thanks David.
