Postcards From Space - Factory Days (mp4 download)

Sounding like Darkroom's acid-soaked older brother, Factory Days is a 25 minute improvised piece.

Recorded live during a support to The Durutti Column in June 2006, this marked the first time Tim Bowness (vocals, vocal loops), Alistair Murphy (organ, analogue synth) and Andy Butler (guitar, guitar loops) had played together.

Organ drones, cosmic synths and treated guitar solos abound. Echoes of early Pink Floyd and Ashra creep into a digital-age loop experience, and an England football megaphone is put to use outside of shouting, "Come on, Crouchy!"

The title comes from an after show comment when a drunken member of the audience approached Tim and said, "Vini, you were great man. I haven't seen you since your Factory days."

Mistaken identity has rarely been so mistaken.

Postcards From Space - Everything You re Not (free mp4 download)

A random example of the songs written by Tim Bowness and Alistair Murphy/The Curator between 2006 and 2010, Everything You're Not is scheduled to appear on Postcards From Space's debut album.

A Bowness song put through The Curator's demented 'arrangement mangle', the piece features some flamboyant piano (the ghost of Liberace), atypical backing vocals, and evokes aspects of early 1970s David Bowie (Space Oddity / Aladdin Sane) and the more acoustic Tim Bowness solo work.

tim bowness - voiceloop one (mp3 download)

The first released example of Tim?s ongoing solo voiceloops experiments, this edit of a 20 minute improvisation concentrates on the more meditative and melodic aspects of the project.

tim bowness / samuel smiles - world of bright futures

Unavailable since 2000, 'World Of Bright Futures', Tim Bowness's 1999 album with Samuel Smiles (Mike Bearpark, Peter Chilvers, Myke Clifford) is now available as an exclusive Burning Shed download.

Taking its cue from the timeless and sensuous late night ambience of John Martyn and the Blue Nile, and occasionally drawing from the darker terrain of Peter Hammill and Mark Eitzel, the album offers eight original compositions and two cover versions (Hammill's 'Ophelia' and King Crimson's 'Two Hands').

Featuring Sandra O'Neill, Tony Harn, and Porcupine Tree's Colin Edwin and Steven Wilson, World of Bright Futures is awash with cheap drum machines and high emotions, digital hardware and human heartache.

Headphones ahoy!
