Circles I 01:36
Golden Thumb 03:39
Father set me free; I'm ready A bootlace in each hand I'm adorned in overcoat Knife in pocket Place on me A parting gift Golden thumb Nobody’s watching, nobody sees Ripping up yarns within the trees Looking for something, nothing appears
 You know there’s something that’s just out of reach But you only get one shot You only have once, you know There is only once You only have one time There is only once and there’ll only be once Golden thumb


"Black and White Memories… requires concentrated listening, as if airing some precious lost and unmixed tapes from a recently discovered secret studio session involving Vashti Bunyan and guest players that Ivo Watts-Russell once conscripted from his extended 4AD family for This Mortal Coil albums.

Stitching together sparse piano lines, strings, other inscrutable textures and Tristram’s elusive elegiac tones, you could possibly classify this as bucolic ethereal chamber music – but ultimately ‘exquisite’ seems to fit the bill more simply and accurately. Yet another Modern Aviation must-buy." Concrete Islands

"This album is wistful and downbeat, yet comforting and captivating. It's a beautiful work of art, and a wonderful display of musical talent. Brilliant stuff." Fog Songs

From Modern Aviation:

Black and White Memories Ignited by the Scent of Springtime Explode in Colour is a collaboration between vocalist Lila Tristram and musical collective The Last Dinosaur, headed by multi-instrumentalist and composer Jamie Cameron.

These five tracks are built around Tristram’s astonishing spectral vocals and soundscapes conjured by The Last Dinosaur that are simultaneously welcoming, warm, uneasy and gently psychedelic. It's unlike anything else in the Modern Aviation catalogue to date and we are proud to share it with you.
