…meanwhile, an unexpected phone call gives a jolt, changing things unalterably. …meanwhile, a vulnerable child is taunted by three schoolyard bullies. …meanwhile, a soft-spoken trio processes mysteriously to the measured pace of an insistent, tolling bell. …meanwhile, a renowned hypnotist practices his art with great skill. …meanwhile, a couple sits quietly, facing their demons. …meanwhile… On this recording, Eighth Blackbird wanders through an unfamiliar house. With each track a new door is opened, releasing unexpected sounds and dramas. Some are sweet, touching. Others have hilarious quirks. A few possess a disturbing strangeness. You can watch a music video by the shadow puppetry company Manual Cinema here.
