Previous Daniel Patrick Quinn records have seen him establish and consolidate an affection for drone and folk music; embellished with tales of Northern England and its marvellous landscapes. Now decamped to Scotland, Quinn has new landmarks to talk about and therefore the narrative element to his work is even more prominent. At times Quinn offers more information than an AA travel guide but ultimately his clear passion and warmth for his surroundings dominates. Nevertheless, as a long term listen his instrumental work is even more arresting, from the eerie 'Make Hay!' to the darkness of 'Clock House' there is a sense of a loss of innocence and bleakness amongst the beautiful pastoral settings. Furthermore, 'Channelkirk And The Surrounding Area' witnesses Quinn making use of a queasily hypnotic melody. For those who see music as an educative tool or are fond of Eyeless In Gaza's folk-tinged experimentation, 'Ridin' The Stang' comes highly recommended.
