More Info

"... Ihr bitterses Timbre, die fast mit Hnden zu greifende Melancholie, sind einzigartig. Die Musik dazu, nur drhnendes Harmonium und eine Handvoll schwarzer Pianoperlen, ist wie ein Rabenflgel, ein samtiger Saum, wie der Schatten, den diese Melancholie nicht abschtteln kann. In Gone verschwinden ein Baum, ein Bild an der Wand, die geliebte Katze, sogar der alte Teppich unter den Fen und auch der Boden selbst. Eine Elegie des Verlustes, der diebischen und mrderischen Zeit. Von Geisterpiano und gespenstischen Stimmen umschallt, rezitiert Fabrizio Palumbo die Strophen, Simonds und Laura Sheeran singen den Refrain: Well
well well Nobody can tell Why why o why Nobody knows. Das ist schon sehr tongue-incheek (wie Hitchcock das genannt htte), purer Edward Gorey." [Bad Alchemy]

"DIE STADT is honored to inform you that a limited edition 7" vinyl single "Gone Every Evening" was released today April 1, (and no, we're not having you on...) 2008. The record features two collaborative pieces by ANDREW LILES & FOVEA HEX, with Fabrizio Palumbo as special guest. Featuring Andrew Liles, Clodagh Simonds, Laura Sheeran, Fabrizio Palumbo and Michael Begg, these two strange songs will find the way swiftly to your very core, quite by themselves, to simultaneously delight and only faintly unsettle you. Needless to say that everyone who enjoyed the 'neither speak nor remain silent' trilogy by Fovea Hex will also love this. It comes packaged in an attractive gatefold cover with printed inner sleeve designed by Andrew Liles in an edition of 500 copies of which only 250 copies will be available for wholesale."

"Following three excellent mini CDs produced with the top layer of sonic experimentalism, Clodagh Simonds teams with here Micheal Begg, Fabrizio Palumbo and Laura Sheeran, all under the guidance of Andrew Liles (rapidly climbing up to the top layer) to record two lovely tracks on a 7". 'Gone' is on side a, and 'Every Evening' on the other. The a-side has piano at the hearth of the piece and Simonds heavenly vocals solo with beautiful ambient like electronics humming sparsely about. 'Every Evening' has a strange narrative by Palumbo and multi-layered singing by Sheeran and Simonds and has a fairy tale like atmosphere, but with an unsettling undercurrent in the piece. This is beautiful too but much more spooky. Way too short on this format, one could only want some more after this. Fascinating, beautiful, small treasure." [FdW / Vital Weekly]
