As English as Wimbledon and Victoria sponge,
This review is from: The Weather Clock (Audio CD)
Utilitarian beauty; long car rides through prefabricated estate wildernesses; a Milton Keynes bus ride on mute. The internal monologue of a train journey to a new start; the restrained, British upper-lipped sad soundtrack to a lonely heart; an eight year old's errand to the local Happy Shopper mini-mart' to buy something they wouldn't want. Watching the cat sleep in a beam of sunlight projected from a high window.
The Weather Clock is apparently influenced by British post-war architecture, and you know exactly what Antony Harding, AKA, July Skies, means by that. It's so much more though: its subtle loneliness, kerplunk childhoods. It's fragile and beautiful and bleak, yet comforting. Yes.
