Robert Reed

Sanctuary II (cd/dvd pre-order)


The more personal Sanctuary II continues where the brilliantly executed and heartfelt Mike Oldfield influenced Sanctuary left off.

Produced, mixed and engineered by Reed, who plays most of the instruments himself, Sanctuary II features legendary drummer Simon Phillips, and also contains contributions from the Tubular Bells production team of Tom Newman and Simon Heyworth.

A double cd / dvd (ntsc, all regions) set, this edition contains the main album, a disc of bonus material (including a Tom Newman mix of the album), plus a 5.1 surround mix of the album, promo videos and interview footage.

Andrew Taylor

Mohribold (cd pre-order)


Released in 2011, Mohribold, is an epic musical work that recalls the artistic ambition and pastoral beauty of early Mike Oldfield (yes, just like Sanctuary II!).

Influenced by the murky and mysterious wilds of Norfolk, Andrew Taylor has created a quintessentially English Psych Folk symphony awash with gentle acoustic guitars, treated electric solos, African drums, South-American ukuleles, bouzoukis, old organs, trumpets and assorted exotic percussion.

Pre-order for 22nd July shipping.

'A seamless meshing of rock, pop and the avant-garde, striking a rare balance between the adventurous and accessible.' - Anil Prasad, Innerviews
