da5idh just gonna come out and say it, this is brilliant. A tip of the chapeau to the unique and profligate in the nicest of ways Mr Halifax. Everything in the Coppice is a balloon of the finest smoke. Bravo sir.
Favorite track: White Drum.

Winter is a severe season, at least much more so than it was (or wasn't at all) in the subtropics of South Carolina. I often feel as if I've inherited the seasons themselves, living here in Ohio, and snow falling never fails to make me feel like I'm living in a fantasy world. Reeling from the joy of looking out of my windows and seeing blankets of white, I took the occasion to jam out some equally joyous and frenetic Halifaxian dance tracks. These two pieces manifested as Winter Arch and White Drum, and felt like the Winter answer to Autumn's Ferine Alembix, in how raw and huge they came out on the tape. They were a lot of fun, start to finish, and I didn't want to obsess too heavily over them, preferring instead to simply fire them off for Bandcamp Friday, mixer to table, smoke em if you've got em. These are electric and alive sessions, and hopefully convey some of the pent-up energy and excitement that I've been saving for live performances that could presumably happen after the pandemic recedes, and like Ferine Alembix, the grittiness and compressor-abuse present in these mixes recalls a very classic Coppice Halifax aesthetic, one I feel completely comfortable with whenever the occasion permits it. If there's been one good thing about staying inside for so long with this pandemic going around, it is that I have been justified in falling down my own creative rabbit hole even further, by virtue of having nowhere else to go setting up elaborate roller coaster rides like these just to zoom through them over and over again all by myself isn't so much a depressing prospect as an immensely enthralling one. As my wife is often fond of quoting: "Can't go mad, ain't got time"
