Computer-animated clip for All Through The Night from Loor, out today

One album that's been a favourite at tQ recently has been Kemper Norton's Loor, a set of Coil-esque uncanny drone pieces, released on Front & Follow today. The label explain that, "[t]he songs on Loor [Cornish for 'moon'] are a loose trilogy of nocturnal encounters, searches and awakenings, often with Kemper Norton revisiting old foes from previous albums and encouraging new treacherous encounters", drawing on "real and imagined cities from childhood" folk influences and found sounds. As such, it's fitting that Scott Byrne's excellent, computer-animated new video for 'All Through The Night', based on the Welsh folksong 'Ar hyd y nos', should feature skeletal figures engaged in various acts of crepuscular rumination in a greyscale city. Watch that above and get hold of the album from the label's Bandcamp, where there a few copies remaining of the first edition of the record, which features an extra disc, 'Salvaged', picking out selections from the Kemper Norton archive. Once you've done that, have a read of our interview with Kemper Norton from last year and listen to 'Helston 91' from Loor below:
