A set of psych/drone outings compiled by Stephen Lawrie of The Telescopes for the groups own Antenna label... VCO's "Chapel Lane Hoedown" has an uncanny clangour all of it's own.. while The Dust Collector's "The Sun Is Freed" goes expressway to mine, a motorik groove out of Alastair Galbraith-style whisperings.
