About this item
First ever vinyl LP release of the album Concrete Island by The Heartwood Institute and Hawksmoor, remastered by Antony Ryan and with artwork by Eric Adrian Lee. Features brand new track 'Maitland' not on the 2020 cassette release. Limited edition of 350 copies worldwide on 'Traffic Cone' orange coloured vinyl. For fans of early Mute Records, Krautrock, motorik music and more! Electronic Sound magazine's Bob Fischer says of the album: 'A bleakly beautiful collection of rush hour synths, PiL bass lines and pattering motorik rhythms.'
Barry says: Every single record (and cassette for that matter) that SOOC put out looks impeccable, and this one sees the supremely talented duo of fellow Floyd fan Hawksmoor (good taste, that guy) and the brilliant Heartwood Institute come together for the most evocative set of pseudo-soundtrack pieces i've heard since the tape release in 2020. It's an extremely accomplished, beautifully rich sleek synth odyssey, and it won't last long!
