A Flight Across Arnhem Land by The Doomed Bird of Providence

Cd and download

The Doomed Bird of Providence present their fourth album, A Flight Across Arnhem Land. It marks a significant departure from the band's last album, 2017's Burrowed into the Soft Sky. Where that album was two extended instrumental pieces exploring early Australian colonial times, the new release is a collection of 16 short pieces that all contain vocals.

Found text was used as the starting point for every song. The texts themselves were sourced from Australian newspapers from the 20s and 30s. Thematically the album sits around stories drawn from this period in Australia. Band leader Mark Kluzek looked for stories that were open-ended or unresolved. Common themes started to arise, missing airplanes, cold case murders and curious, out-of-the-ordinary incidents.

The album artwork was by Judi Dransfield Kuepper who has done, amongst other things, most of the artwork and design for Ed Kuepper and Laughing Clowns.

Uisneach by Maja Elliott

A message from Maja:

Materialized from the mysterious treasure chests of the Universe, the harp players sit at the walls of Sintra. I approached them and struck up a conversation without saying a word. They responded with music. Mountains were anointed with the harp melodies and this godly beauty of the creation prompted me to add my notes to it. With the harps and Sintra still resonating in me, I ended up in Ireland, whose open gates were an entrance to the otherworld, Uisneach. A sacred fire, lit by the druid Mide, raged on Uisneach for seven years, but sparkles of Sintra and of Uisneach planted a fire in me that carried its spiritual power for twenty years.

This is a distance between the track Uisneach and the track Rain. They are close in their spiritual power but far apart if judging by the time of creation. My fire - carried by me as though I was an Olympian - from the hills of Sintra, flourished in Ireland and kept raising my creative temperature culminating in fever… and then this burning mountain, a burial ground was consumed by Rain that refreshed everything that got burned… Both, Uisneach and Rain, represent a creative balance that I achieve, when one element doesn’t negate but complement one another.Be Here Then was initially intended to be an album to coincide with a 50 year anniversary tour of Pass the Distance’s release, but it turned out this ageing frame had some cracks and needed a few new frets and a new bridge - once accomplished, the world then closed down for its own repairs.

Be Here Then by Simon Finn

A message from Simon:

Be Here Then was initially intended to be an album to coincide with a 50 year anniversary tour of Pass the Distance’s release, but it turned out this ageing frame had some cracks and needed a few new frets and a new bridge - once accomplished, the world then closed down for its own repairs.

When the full album, LP or CD will happen is unclear, so I’ll release tracks here and there when recording is possible. Many many thanks to Mark Kluzek for knowing where and how this is done, and for doing it! My knowledge of what I think of as the woe betide you web, and what others refer to the internet is limited, and after the 10 to 1 accounts were hacked some years ago, I became rather more wary of its perks.

Track history: I doubt it started life 2 or so years ago with The Sea Bracken Choir at Leigh-on-Sea, and then it took awhile for me to decide to let into the public realm.

Kings and Crazies was recorded in March 2020 with Joolie before either of us, or apparently the government, knew any better.

Thanks as always to Joolie Wood for her pre Covid vocals & melodica.

Our Da Da (The Chord’s Prayer), mostly came to me in a Moody Bluesian, Dystopian, Duchampian dream. Steve Krakow was putting together an online version of his Million Tongues Festival in Chicago. I didn’t have the courage to record anything live on my sofa for it, so Our Da Da was by way of a blessing. I have since sent a live (ish) version of Kings & Crazies which I recorded at home live and then added an additional track.

Suffice to say I am still passing the distance, and likely, though probably more by luck than judgement, so will the world.

I'll dedicate it to the romantics, who feel the worse thing that can happen to you in life is death - and also to the rest of us.

Maja Elliott – Dreams of Elyssia

Now available and for sale on 10 to 1 Records


In Maja's words it is "an emotional journey through genres, time and place. It spans a 5 year period, the title track Dreams of Elyssia having first been recorded on the Current 93 album, Live in Lisbon, with Antony (from Antony and the Johnson's). Some tracks were recorded in Venice, others in Sweden and Ireland." It as stunningly beautiful.
