The Winter Hill Transmission
Newcastle’s The Winter Hill Transmission first troubled our listings compilers seven or eight years ago and it’s been a long wait for an album to arrive, but, boy, has it been worth it. The 10 tracks here have all been finely calibrated, sharing the push, pull and gloriously geometry of the best Field Music songs, but they also have an inner glow, a sun-breaking-through-the-clouds quality, that melds together longing, wistfulness, hope and love into a life-affirming whole. Just beautiful (as is the cover artwork by local artist Jim Edwards).
