Alison Cotton may be best known as one half of The Left Outsides as well as been a name to be found on many of the finest folk/drone/experimental contemporary recording artists releases too via her sonorous Viola playing. So both Cardinal Fuzz and Feeding Tube records at last can bring to you via the medium of Vinyl, Alison Cottons debut release - All Is Quiet At The Ancient Theatre (after 3 sold out runs via Bloxham Tapes). Over 35 minutes Alison Cotton casts you into the most meditative of states via droning viola, recorders and lilting Gregorian vocal sighs. While it would be easy to classify this as folk music, Alison has created something that feels like music for the soul. In this modern life of never switching off or stopping, here with have music in no rush to go anywhere other than to place the listener in what feels like the most relaxed state of lucid dreaming you can have.
"An eerie, lost folk horror soundtrack glinting in the sunshine, Cotton’s pure English voice rising mysteriously around the violas and recorders." JUDE ROGERS, THE GUARDIAN

Holy smoke. One of the finest contemporary psych albums I've heard. Like an acoustic Annexus Quam meets Popul Vuh circa Brüder des Schattens meets Amon Düül circa Paradieswärts Düül meets traditional musicians from rural Iran playing Fairport Convention's Matty Groves. Forward thinking heads from southern Arizona making music as authentic and transcendent as it comes. Mushroom Head
