ORGAN THING: The rather satisfying maps and Innerlands of one time Engineer Mark Peters…

“We are incredibly proud to have released the first ever solo recordings by ex-Engineers songwriter Mark Peters. The mini-album Innerland is out now as a download and a limited cassette which looks like a tiny Ordnance Survey map” so say the people over at Sonic Cathedral records, we can see why, it is an incredibly beautiful release, quietly uncluttered and flowing in just the right way, and the artwork is rather satisfying, “It’s a six-track collection of instrumentals — with nods to Brian Eno, Talk Talk, Richard Thompson, Vini Reilly and Felt’s Maurice Deebank — that highlights Mark’s musicianship, positioning his guitar rather than his voice as the focal point. It also finds him reconnecting with his youth and rediscovering a sense of place, following a move back home to northwest England late last year, with all of the songs named after local places and landmarks. You can read Mark’s guide to the internal and external geography of Innerland here.”

Get the limited-edition cassette version of the debut solo recordings by Mark Peters (Engineers), comes as a mini Ordnance Survey Landranger, with slipcase and an imaginary map via Bandcamp
