Aba Oblongata Listen to Pawleys Island if you are reading this in 2020; the ideal album illuminating an introspective of introversion. Favorite track: Tropical Depression.

Edan Coppice Halifax has set time and time again a digital landscape within which to get lost in, even if for only two hours of playtime. Ambience alternates between being a supporting element to Halifax's techno-esque percussion and the sporting element driving the emotion of the track home. The progression of each track presents itself in such a way that one can can become engrossed while also providing moments of clarity in a muddying world where all seems contrived. Excellent work all around.

David Prescott I can't believe I didn't get this until now. It is a real watershed release for CH, reminding me of the Analog Botany cassette release. Creative, upbeat melodies. Among the best of the CH archive!
Favorite track: Barefoot Stargazer.

  • 2xCassette First Edition [Ultra-Rare Dustproof Library Case Archive Copy]
    Cassette + Digital Album

    More artifacts unearthed while unpacking and moving into the new studio! I've found ONE COPY of the first edition double-cassette version of Pawleys Island. This one, numbered X/20, was a prototype/assembly copy, and likely just got misplaced and packed away. The only difference between this copy and the released version is that it does not include the folded brown cardstock insert with the track listing inside, and the tapes are black instead of clear (though my memory cannot be certain of a fully clear tape pressing or if they were mixed colors to begin with). This is truly a rarity, as the cases were given to me by a friend who worked at a library in New Zealand, when they were throwing away a lot of old audiobooks. So the pressing quantity was completely limited to how many cases I was given, and that was it. A real treat for those of you who like a little wow and flutter with your CH listening!

    **NOTE: The items listed in the back catalog sale have all been found while unpacking. Some of them have been packed away for years in storage, and may have small imperfections. These are being sold as is, as the artifacts they are, to raise money for implementing the new studio. No refunds will be given.

about

Over two years in the making, Pawleys Island could be considered the quintessential Coppice Halifax album. Started in 2008, and built via a year-long sifting process which was the Analog Botany series in 2009, Pawleys is a potent double-album that collects everything about a specific time and place and bottles it up in stylish colorful glass jars. Conceptualized as a representation of Brian's experiences in and around the actual Pawleys Island, a marshy coastal location just outside of Myrtle Beach, where Brian grew up, these recordings are a wistful kind of sad nostalgia for good times and bad times too. Building sandcastles as a child, going on school field trips to learn about marsh wildlife, partying with friends as a teen. Poolhopping, playing shows, pancake houses, warped cassettes in the car stereo, romance, hurricanes, shitty jobs, driving 40 minutes one-way to get back home, alone, at 3 AM, doing 60 through lampless country roads, mildly stoned, deep inside SAW 85-92, Cosmic Thing and "Kid For Today", zooming from the coastline to the country. Pawleys Island is the summation of all of these things, and more...musically it could be considered an apex of Brian's work within the dub techno template, but with lots of additional influences and flavors mixed in as well. Pawleys Island is an album about the bliss you find in missing things, and the comfort in being sad.
