We've judged the public mood on this one
From infuriating levels of isolation productivity – albums written and recorded during six weeks of lockdown – to field recordings of endangered bats, these are our favourite 10 albums from the month of May. We think we’ve judged the public mood on this one perfectly; on the off-chance that you’re planning a 520-mile-round road trip this weekend, we’ve got your playlist sorted. (We didn’t include Sleaford Mods in here, as that’s a compilation and ten’s a nice number, but listen to All That Glue too).
Artist: Field Works
Label: Temporary Residence
What is it? The eighth instalment in musician and National Geographic Explorer Stuart Hyatt’s Field Works series, with an all-star cast of ambient/ experimental producers and source material comprised primarily from the endangered Indiana bat.
L&Q says: “What’s most striking about this compilation are the gulfs of difference between each composition. At its most engaging, artists find a playful synchronicity between the natural and the considered”.
