descriptionVinyl LP pressing includes bonus CD edition. 2012 debut release by this solo project from former Appliance member James Brooks. Appliance released four critically acclaimed albums on Mute before disbanding. Since then, attempts to develop a new project alongside his visual art meant that Brooks did a lot of home recording at his flat in Hackney, East London. Land Observations, developed out of an interest in the former Roman roads that lay just a short walk from his front door - roads of communication and conquest that stretch from the old City of London and out across parts of Britain, Europe and beyond. Land Observations sees Brooks exploring the power of minimalism via layered, repetitive electric VI string guitar to create warm, evocative instrumentals.
