Darkroom - selsey reflections EP (mp3 download)

A free introduction to the band, Selsey Reflections features the single Ahead Finitely taken from the new album Gravity's Dirty Work, together with exclusive and archive tracks: the odd time signature sequences of Selsey Reflections; the intense live performance of Light Sleeper; and the first track recorded by the project that became Darkroom, the 18-minute dub collage Alien Grace, restored and remastered for 2013.

Darkroom - Borrowed Light (free mp3 download)

Borrowed Light is an alternative mix of the tracks 'My Sunsets Are All One-Sided', taken from Darkroom's latest album, Some Of These Numbers Mean Something.

Darkroom - Some Of These Numbers Mean Something (cd)

Darkroom's latest album, Some Of These Numbers Mean Something - their 8th to date -marks the 10th anniversary of debut release, Daylight.

The original brief for the new album was, 'place guitar under microscope'. In places, it's the hardest hitting Darkroom album to date, but without doubt it's also the most accessible, combining 70's space rock, 80's Sheffield electronica, 60's guitar instrumentals and contemporary post rock.

From Santana & Tangerine Dream to Cocteau Twins & Tortoise, file under ambient stadium rock.

darkroom - the dac mixes (slight return) (free mp3 download)

Many view Nemeton's "Remix 2", the last track on The DAC Mixes, as amongst the highlights of the album. "Remix 2" was picked as being the best of the four remixes submitted by Nemeton, but it was a close call as the band considered all of them excellent.

Rather than have these tracks languishing, unheard, on the Darkroom hard drive, the band decided to put these out as a free download and a subtle advertisement for the original 'The DAC Mixes' album itself (which featured mixes and contributions from Bass Communion, Tim Bowness, Theo Travis, Peter Chilvers and Centrozoon, amongst others).

darkroom - deconstructed (mp3 download)

A piece originally composed for an as yet unreleased Greek compilation album themed around the concept of the "deconstructed guitar".

Mike Bearpark's trademark multi-pedal guitar techniques are put through the unique Os studio filter to produce this evocative Fripp and Eno-tinged soundscape.

darkroom - the dac mixes (cdr)

A collection of unreleased Darkroom explorations recorded at the
Digital/Analogue Cambridge Festival, 2001, and subsequently put through the mixing mangle by the talented likes of Bass Communion, Rhinoceros, Theo Travis and Centrozoon.

Also contains Butterfly 2, featuring a vocal contribution from Tim Bowness.

darkroom - seethrough (cdr)

Originally released in 1999, Seethrough is the most dynamic, twisted and song-orientated release in the band's career.

Seven slices of electronica-driven aural assaults (occasionally recalling the more extreme experiments of Underworld or Wild Opera-era No-Man), find Messrs Bearpark, Bowness and Os maniacally playing with the possibilities of the turn of the century pop song.

How S Club 8 should sound in 2003!

darkroom - fallout 3 (cdr)

Fallout 3 is a celebration of the art of post-production, subjecting
unreleased Darkroom live material to the possibilities of the studio while retaining the music's improvisational spirit.

darkroom - fallout 2 (cdr)

Featuring Darkroom as duo (Michael Bearpark and Os), Fallout 2 is another collection of hair raising live performances from this impossible to pigeon-hole improv-electronica outfit.

darkroom - fallout 1 (cdr)

A seamless blend of treated vocal and guitar, scattergun rhythms and inventive synth experiments which calls to mind an unholy alliance between Fripp/Eno, Photek and Satan himself.
