  • Description

    Underground hybrid trad-electronic duo Stick In The Wheel have put together three new recordings alongside three radical reworkings of friends and collaborators, each pushing in different directions.

    Slow-burn grime-epic Ruins VIP laments civilisations falling again and again, using a 10th century text allegedly citing the fall of Roman Bath. The Cuckoo VIP's pastoral vocal flits slowly over dubbed-out electronica. Hypnotic lo-fi Long The Day shimmers and segues into the calm moment of KILA & OKI's lullaby, whilst Jim Ghedi's complaint simmers with rage. Jrpjej's track Shexex (Chapshe wored) evokes a Circassian healing ritual, their chants stretched into a monumental, pulsing, almost death-metal cut.

    Ruins EP has a particular resonance today, where cities and communities are being ruined before our eyes from Gaza to Ukraine, Congo to Sudan. To reflect that fact, all proceeds from the release will go to Medecins Sans Frontieres.
