Magnus Moriarty™s sixth album is a journey through the different stages and relationships of life, spanning from childhood to parenthood, looking back as well as forward. It seems like the filters of conventionality have disappeared, leaving a whole new world of possibilities and ways of making music, using both old and new technology to sharpen the sense of timelessness. The cover art is made by his father when he was a kid, so illustrating the time-lapse between grandparents, parents and kids over generations. And nothing could be more appropriate for Magnus Moriarty™ than to release his sixth album on the day of the solar eclipse. 'In Search of the Archetype' is out digitally and on vinyl 20th march via Metronomiconaudio and Musikkoperatørene. A limited edition of 30 LPs will be sold with solar eclipse glasses.

Metronomicon Audio is a small record label based in Oslo, Norway. Strictly speaking, it is not really a label, but rather a community with some 20 active members and a wide range of affiliates which together aim to promote new and interesting music.
At first glance, the landscape on the cover of Martin John Henry’s The Other Half of Everything is a scene of complete isolation. This is Scotland. An archetypal rugged landscape of hills and lochs, as far as the eye can see. On closer inspection, there are some signs of habitation: buildings, roads, farms… but they … Continue reading Album of the Week: The Other Half of Everything → Bandcamp Album of the Day Nov 21, 2011
