Last November Roy Montgomery announced a new LP quadrilogy, an ideal sequel to R M H Q: Headquarters but also an opportunity to celebrate his first 40 years of career. The new releases, which will be released at different times next year, follow Suffuse, album also printed via Grapefruit in 2018 (and reviewed on these pages by Edoardo Bridda).
In these hours the New Zealand musician – now resident in Death Valley – shared The Electric Children of Hildegard von Bingen (For Florian Fricke), in the Motorik Mix version of the homonymous song. This is the first extract from the first work of the four, Island of Lost Souls, to be released on February 5, 2021. Below both versions and images of all the cover art by Trudi Cameron.
