“Electronic ragas and kosmische musik are, along with Canterbury prog rock, pervasive undercurrents in Archer’s varied output. Yet the scope of his appreciation is open and celbratory rather than partisan and polemical.” – JULIAN COWLEY, THE WIRE
“Ranging from limpid watery dabblings to futuristic squiggles….it’s a focused, serious and never less than entertaining release” – Daniel Spicer JAZZWISE (review of original vinyl release)

You can buy your CD or DL either direct from Discus Music or from Bandcamp. The prices and the postage charges are the same on both sites, but Bandcamp will charge you VAT on DL only purchases. Whichever site you choose, the DL element is delivered to your Bandcamp collection.
Discus pays a 10% commission to Bandcamp on sales there, but if you buy direct from Discus Music we get to keep 100% – which of course we prefer! But in the end, please buy from whichever site suits you best.
