I like JDB doing guest vocals. I like Public Service Broadcasting. Therefore I like this track.

Thanks for posting the link!

EDIT: Any idea who did the lyrics? Very Nicky-like...

It's the poem Gwalia Deserta by Idris Davies

It was a decent song - need a high quality rip to hear it better. Did JDB write the music?

He gets a joint songwriting credit in the album credits so guess he had some input. Still working my through it but seems a more expansive album than previous PSB, liking it a lot.

I've had it on repeat.

I loved Commemoration and Amnesia (1998) and musically it reminds me of that. JDB's skill at putting lovely, foreboding music to poetry is unmatched in my opinion.

It's cool. It reminds me a lot of All Alone Here (Empty Souls' B-side) plus a dash of Massive Attack's Teardrop.

Totally getting the Massive Attack feel in the song, that's spot on. It's a belter of a track to help tide us over!

It is indeed. I think a wise choice to focus on the personal rather than the political and as a result the back half of the album is all the feels. Particularly you + me which all gets quite emotional with the gorgeous crescendo of strings.

Inner eye opening to the stepped scarlet pyramid of the Eastern Seaboard Fission Authority burning beyond the green cubes of Mitsubishi Bank of America, and high and very far away he saw the spiral arms of military systems, forever beyond his reach.
And somewhere he was laughing, in a white-painted loft, distant fingers caressing the deck, tears of release streaking his face.

Pretty much everything from All Out onwards is pure gold on the album, thats my only frustration to be honest that the 1st half feels a bit weak in comparison. Good shout on All Alone Here up above , very similiar melody and all the better for it!
