Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
They are explorations of the patterns beneath the plough, pylons and amongst the edgelands, wanderings which take in the beauty and escape of rural pastures, intertwined with a search for expressions of an underlying unsettledness to the bucolic countryside dream.
The Marks Upon The Land takes inspiration from memories of childhood countryside idylls spent under the shadow of Cold War end of days paranoia and amongst the dreamscapes of dystopic science fiction tales.
The book collects all 104 images that were created during the first year of A Year In The Country.

As a project, it has included a website featuring writing, artwork and music which stems from that otherly pastoral/spectral hauntological intertwining, alongside a growing catalogue of album releases.

"A Year In The Country quietly go about their business releasing beautifully packaged music that is influenced by folk, electronica, drone as well as by landscape, time and place... each have themes running through them, tying the music together and seemingly telling a story as they unfold." Terrascope

In 2018 the A Year In The Country: Wandering Through Spectral Fields book was released which draws together revised writing from the project, alongside new wanderings:
"...an essential field guide to a distinct aesthetic that remains loosely defined, like a fluttering night moth that would die if pinned down." Ben Graham, Shindig!
"...the first book of it's kind to catalogue all these disparate strands, many of which cross over time and space to influence one another." DJ Food
"...author Prince has pulled together a mass of material culled not only from the website and its associated albums, but also a great deal more that was written specifically for the book. And the result is spellbinding." Dave Thompson, Goldmine “Stephen Prince's densely packed tome covers everything from folkloric film and literature to electronic music to acid folk to folk horror to the dystopian fiction of John Wyndham and the classic unearthings of Nigel Kneale to the formation of under-the-furrows record labels like Trunk, Ghost Box and Finders Keepers… This incredibly well-researched book, which is obviously written by a man with an enormous passion for this subject, is probably as comprehensive as it is possible to be… Books this culturally valuable don't grow on hedgerows, so make sure you harvest it immediately." Ian White, Starburst
