'Here we hear David Colohan as Agitated Radio Pilot, and in soundscape mode. Now, he did that occasionally on several releases, but rarely so fine as here, especially considering this is from 2005. "Broken Hill" introduces us immediately to this style, with layered accordion and organ drones. Subtle melodic progressions and live sounds are woven together to create a breathtaking melancholic soundscape. The short and beautiful "For Karen Ava" is based on a sad cello melody, later supported by organ drones and faint crackling, which serves, in a way, as lovely percussion. The split ends with "Umberumberka", which is again based on organ drones, embellished by more cello, but also by David's wordless vocals. These are three absolutely wonderful tracks, and only with the superb "The Barren Ground Assembly" was he able to equal this level, at least in term of soundscapes. Some of the best acoustic soundscapes I know of, and I hope Agitated Radio Pilot will continue to make them like this.' Oscar Strik, Evening of Light
released 22 November 2005
Originally released as a split with Peter Wright & The North Sea as Deserted Village DV16. As a standalone EP, I'm giving it the name it was intended to have. The artwork has also been changed from the original, in keeping with the theme. Shane Cullinane, Gavin Prior & Scott McLaughlin joined me on a variety of chord organs & cello.
