Lightning In A Twilight Hour is the new project from Bobby Wratten (The Field Mice, Northern Picture Library, Trembling Blue Stars) with Beth Arzy (The Luxembourg Signal, Trembling Blue Stars) and Michael Hiscock (The Field Mice).
For their fourth release, Bobby is joined by Anne Mari Barker-Davies (The Field Mice, Northern Picture Library) on vocals, and regular producer Ian Catt. "Quiet Actions" is a cassette only edition of 100 copies.
It features two brand new long-form compositions – "Abandoned Islands", whereby a repeating series of simple phrases relies on increased effects to achieve the movement within the piece, and "Suspended Animation" featuring the aforementioned Barker-Davies and a close mic-ed portable cassette player providing a subtle rhythm, a nod to the intended format. Both recordings were made in late February 2017 and both feature field recordings made in Liverpool in April 2016.
