New Music

I haven't put out any music since 2008. It feels like an long time ago... I have been working on new material all through this time, though, so have decided to start making some of it available. There is a full album of stuff, which started out as a new Northstation album a few years back, but, over time, became something else. I'm releasing it under the new name 'Small Group Primate'. Over the next five weeks I'm going to put two new tracks a week from it onto the site. You can stream and download the first pair here:


Also, I've made everything I've released over the last 14 years available for streaming and download over on my music page.
