Giving the excellent Occupying Forces by Halo Blind another spin. One of no fewer than five excellent albums from the York scene so far this year.

    When Empires Fall, Paul Teasdale’s project.

    Ah, that’s one I haven’t got yet. I have rectified that – not sure why the “buy album” link is on a page called “media”. Doesn’t seem to be the most intuitive place for it. I didn’t look there when the review appeared – just assumed it wasn’t available yet. Silly me …

    Also, Smithereens and the tracks that follow it to close Occupying Forces – excellent stuff.

    When Empires Fall is great. Not quite what I was expecting, since the sample track release last year isn’t typical of the rest of the album, with a guest vocalist who only sings lead on that one song. When Empires Fall and Occupying Forces have quite a bit in common with each other.
