More Info:

Among the Never Setting Stars is the debut LP from Dorset based artist Matthew Shaw.

Following a series of cd & cdr releases on various labels as well as homemade art editions and a 7" ep on Sonic Oyster Records. The album contains six ambient pieces with each title being a lead into the mood the music takes on. Each title forming a poem across the lp.

The artwork is a painting By Brian Catling (RA) titled Transi. The painting deals with some of the same themes, life, death, and renewal moving in cycles.

“His music delves deep in Hidden Reverse traditions, incorporating specific environmental soundings of occult landscapes into beautiful drone works that advance the oracular/hallucinogenic English underground tradition.” - David Keenan

"These warm, melancholy undulations interfere with each chord’s gravitational pull, creating tonal fata morgana and melodies that may or may not be there: a state similar to meditation where she is neither asleep nor awake. All said, it will take you places.” - Charlie Frame, The Quietus

Limited to 250 copies pressed on 180-gram Galaxite Stone coloured vinyl.

The album includes a download code featuring three additional tracks not featured on the LP.
