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.

Mixing classic synthesizer & guitar tones with inventive post-production, the album combines improvisation with carefully crafted and layered arrangements to reward repeated listenings.

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

The album was mastered by award-winning engineer Jon Astley (The Who, Led Zeppelin) and features a typically evocative Carl Glover sleeve.
