Notes

The Unwinding Hours' self-titled album deals primarily with failing relationships, something Craig is happy to clarify: "The main themes throughout the record are of relationships: some ending, some starting, some going well, some going very, very badly. Traces attempts to capture that powerful, almost drunken, sensation you feel when a relationship is in its infancy; Child deals with the bitter end of another."

There is an argument that wreckage (emotional or otherwise) recurs heavily throughout the course of the album: Annie Jane is named after a real shipwreck while the closing track, The Final Hour, emerged from its own period of prolonged upheaval. Initially recorded in a friend's Boston studio during Aereogramme's last tour of the US, The Final Hour demo was conceived with the rain hammering down on a dispiriting, traumatic tour and, as Iain points out, "the original demo definitely reflected that. So much so that I don't think Craig even wanted to listen to the song again let alone put it on the album, but I kept insisting it was a belter and that we should work on it. The refrain that Craig sings in the latter half of the song "I saw you..." is one of my favourite things he has ever written and I wanted the music to be devastatingly loud and slow."

Bring the noise, indeed...

The Unwinding Hours ~ Ltd. Edition Gatefold Vinyl


UPDATE: Due to the overwhelming demand for The Unwinding Hours album on vinyl, we decided to press an extra 500. We realise of course that the initial run was intended to be strictly limited so there is a difference with this new run in that it will not include the numbered and signed photograph of Craig and Iain. The initial run of this vinyl was limited to 600, so if you've got the signed photograph then you belong to a rather exclusive club.

The vinyl version of the album we now have in stock is no different in any other way so here's what you'll get:

• Heavy vinyl...
• In a gatefold sleeve...
• A CD version of the album for all your MP3 requirements.

We hope you understand our decision to make an additional pressing - we felt it was too important for those of you wanting vinyl to have the opportunity of bagging one...
