Twalif X is an audio journey through one night; the album was recorded between dusk and dawn on the 12th/13th May 2014 in Robin Wood, Bears Wood, Knott Wood and on Eagle Crag.

All recordings were captured on one microphone and processed/mixed by N. Racker (samandtheplants / Supernatural Lancashire / Finders Keepers Records) and D. Orphan (Folklore Tapes / Pre-Cert Home Entertainment).

The imagery for the release was created using photographs taken during the outing and spliced with original artwork by A Year In The Country.

“…sometimes it is as though when listening to Twalif X that you are almost next to these explorers and you find that you have travelled with them to the otherly darker corners of the woodlands and landscape. A work that is both calm and quietly unsettling, experimental with bursts of folkloric melody that appears with the coming of the dawn…” (AYITC).

All editions custom printed and hand-finished by A Year In The Country.

about

A Year In The Country UK

A Year In The Country is a set of year long journeys; explorations of an otherly pastoralism, a wandering amongst subculture that draws from the undergrowth of the land–the patterns beneath the plough, pylons & amongst the edge lands.

Wanderings through the beauty & escape of rural pastures, intertwined with a search for expressions of an underlying unsettledness to the bucolic countryside dream.
