The Dengie Hundred LP

The Dengie Hundred LP Brackenbank – Ethbo

Debut solo album from The Dengie Hundred, one half of London’s Blackwater.

Composed of sounds recorded in an unfamiliar landscape of sea and rock and sky, ‘Brackenbank’s’ electronic sonic atmosphere was processed on the lines of the Great Western Railway as The Dengie Hundred travelled back and forth: looking forward; longing after. Kingsand, Cawsand, Eddystone, Firestone – the album’s grid references are both geographical and emotional, offering love songs and instrumentals as pulsing trances from places that can be traced with a finger across the map of The Rame, Cornwall’s ‘most unsung’ peninsula.

“Comparisons are odious but inevitable”, so we suggest touches of Wire, Martin Hannett’s pensive moments, gawd knows, Eno? Possible threads of all these and more, but cast in the Dengie’s singular sound-world of twilight marshes, rusting hulks and unearthly train stations.

Brackenbank was mastered by Carim Clasmann, mastered and cut for vinyl by Stefan Betke (aka Pole).
