Ahead of Friday's debut album release, take a listen to a 17-minute single from the excellent Craven Faults

This Friday will see the release of Erratics & Unconformities, the debut album from Craven Faults. Ahead of that they have shared the opening track, ‘Vacca Wall’, which you can hear above.

Although they have been releasing music as Craven Faults for a few years, not much is known about the musician other than that they work from a disused textile mill somewhere in Yorkshire. A glance at any of their social media pages doesn’t give much more insight other than demonstrating their deep appreciation for synths and audio gear, which they let do the talking for them.

‘Vacca Wall’, named for the mysterious alignment of rocks found in the forest of Chevin, unspools with engrossing patience, reeling in your attention. This is rewarded somewhere deep into the extended run time when a satisfying bass thud that surfaces from the recesses of the synth undercurrent.

Erratics & Unconformities is out this Friday, January 10 via The Leaf Label. It will be available digitally, as well as in a limited edition double yellow vinyl edition, on black vinyl, and as a box set which compiles all of Craven Faults’ preceding EPs with the album.

You can pre-order the record on Bandcamp here.
