    We sold out of the first pressing of Creatures much sooner than we expected and this left us with a number of people who missed out and with a quandary. We promised no repressing but we don't like to disappoint.

    So we have printed a very few copies of the album on black vinyl with a new sleeve as a 2nd Edition, primarily for those folk who told us they missed out first time around.

    We had to raise the price a little as pressing costs are more expensive for shorter runs and we wanted to keep this run short and this edition exclusive.

  • Test Pressing of The Creatures We Were Before We Are Ghosts
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    One of three test pressings from Austrovinyl for the LP The Creatures We Were Before We Are Ghosts.

    Doesn't come with record sleeve or printed labels but with black dust jacket (as pictured) and inner lyric card.

    These sound pretty much identical to the pressed records but may have some extra clicks/pops (they play through but they are test pressings) and as they are the last way we have of getting the album on vinyl we'll price them the identically to the original vinyl.

about

Songs for the album were recorded in Leith Theatre during a particularly cold March. You can see the Theatre in the photos above & hear the beautiful, cavernous, open space in tracks such as the upcoming ‘Lord, I Am Grateful’ and ‘Deep, Dark River Running’.

Sessions also took place in the much warmer surroundings of Pete Harvey’s Pumpkinfield studio.

Pete and his string quartet the Pumpkinseeds then added sublime, luminous string arrangements to two tracks ‘The Things I Love Are Not At Home’ and ‘All We Are Is All There Was and All There Ever Shall Be’.

The record will be released by wonderful Olive Grove Records in late summer 2020 (18th of September to be precise) on translucent vinyl & on all your favourite streaming platforms.

about

The Son(s) UK

A new Son(s) LP - due to trouble your ears sometime before the apocalypse hits... (ooops)

The List - "Grammatical funk, cross-dressing blues and skewed-folk despotism never sounded so full of the joys of spring"

The Herald - “A psychedelic-folk wonderland, with vocals gorgeously behind the beat and music intrepidly ahead of the pack”

Drowned in Sound - "...like the menopause in surround sound.”
