Penguin Cafe - Handfuls of Night (Clear Vinyl Edition)
Indies exclusive on clear vinyl.
The new full length album from Penguin Cafe, following on from 2017's critically acclaimed The Imperfect Sea.
Handfuls of Night’s tones, textures and melodies evoke otherworldly expanses, which at different junctures are either foreboding, awe inspiring or peaceful. There’s subtly morphing rhythmic repetition throughout, somewhere between minimalism, krautrock and the piano-cascades of label peer Lubomyr Melnyk. Jeffes creates a kinetic, circling motion, which drives the album forward in the form of a musical trip that mirrors the physical journey it was inspired by.
