DARKSHIPS Hiraeth and See How the Summer Colt Rides CDRs (Wishing Chair) Two new albums from Darkships, available as downloads or limited edition CDRs in handmade fold-out paper hiraethcoverblissaquamarinesleeves. Darkships is the project of Jon Chinn, also featuring various collaborators including Marc Swordfish of Astralasia. Hiraeth brings a diverse set of influences together into a coherent whole. Play the Light is a liquid, hypnotic psych track bookended by experimental soundscaping comprising whooshing and pulsating electronics and found sounds. To You, From Where? is a very inventive piece of song-based yet experimental electronica, incorporating electronically processed voice and atmospheric use of trumpet. Because of the Sun is an instrumental piece that blurs the lines between experimental, prog and spacerock, and is well worth investigating if you enjoy the more experimental sounds to come out of the Stone Premonitions stable. The Westward Path melds funk and jazz with heavy prog rock and vintage style electronica. Jon describes See How the Summer Colt Rides as "a nod to my post-punk/psych roots". It's certainly that, but not without Darkships' usual willingness to experiment and venture beyond the norm. Silver Fishes is a mix of dark and angular post-punk and experimental electronica. Speak to the Mountain is intense psych-rock with experimental undercurrents. Go Deeper is a kind of ambient/world fusion, with atmospheric vocals from guest singer Phoebe. Out My Tree combines melodic punk and noisy indiepop aspects with inventive use of electronics and even a homage to The Beatles' She Loves You. Fire Wheel is brooding post-punk with hints of dark folk adding to the ominous atmosphere. Counting Sheep mixes post-punk with ethereal electronic accompaniment. Eclectic, innovative, boundary-busting sounds - visit  Download these and other Darkships music here
