There have been a number of sightings of WTL & The Revenant Sea over these past few weeks, popping up in all kinds of wonderous aural collections.
And on another Geography Trip, this time into the wilds of The Progress Blog, WTL’s ‘How It Starts’ was glimpsed in the shadows.
The exquisite Rano Records (Ohio) took The Revenant Sea on its first outing during his ‘Outer Church Confessional’ mix for Joseph Stannard’s ‘The Outer Church‘ where ‘It’s Been Following the Plane Since Moscow’ was showcased.
The Ephemeral Man (whose ‘Nacreous Clouds’ album throws you deep into a Quatermass rave and drags you out the other side into a shoreline chill-out plagued by the sci-fi nightmares of the night before) has incorporated The Revenant Sea’s ‘Induced Mutations for Accelerated Domestication’ into his excellent ‘Ghosts & Goblins’ mix for Alrealon Musique.
Thank you all for your support, we are humbled to be included alongside such incredible company! Thanks for spreading my sound-virus around!
The Revenant Sea has it’s own page right HERE !
The tape is available for pre-order right now from Auditory Field Theory which gives you access to an instant download of the album.
The album features four tracks of “… dark, ambient soundcapes surrounded by ominous dark skies weaved of intricate aural tapestries. The Revenant Sea is a haunting, beautiful and inter-dimensional work, worthy of deep exploration…” and will be released on limited cassette and as a download in March.
All is now in the hands of master masterer Andrea Marutti and AFT’s eternally enthusiastic EK to do their magic behind the scenes.
Sound clips and stuff soon!
For now have a listen to track 1 from the release ‘It’s Been Following the Plane Since Moscow’.
WTL would like to draw your attention to their Bandcamp page where you can have the run of the shop and ‘pay-what-you-like’ for nearly everything WTL has recorded

Separate to The Revenant Sea collaboration with Justin Wiggan in his Roadside Picnic guise, I have been working on a Revenant Sea EP. The EP is untitled at the moment but I have been busy in the studio recording, constructing and mixing and here is the first result of those sessions…
More info on this soon!
We are very proud to announce our side-project The Revenant Sea.
‘The Sun of These Corridors’ is a taster from the forthcoming EP ‘Their Words Are Lost in the Din of Jets’ which is the result of a collaboration with Roadside Picnic (Justin Wiggan).
PS Release details coming soon …
It is incredibly humbling to make any end of year list and we are so proud to have our album ‘The Failed Silence‘ included on three such lists.
First up is Joseph Stannard‘s vast list of genre spanning sounds which sees ‘The Failed Silence’ set alongside albums by Van Halen, The Beach Boys, oh/ex/oh, TVO, Patti Smith, Howlround and fellow First Fold Records labelmates Them Use Them.
Next up ‘The Failed Silence’ was included by An Taobh Tuathail‘s Cian Ó Cíobháin on his list of favourite LP’s from the fourth quarter of this year. Again it is such a thrill to be on there alongside First Fold label mates Them Use Them.
Finally Mr Leigh Wright (aka Ephemeral Man) picked us to be on his list. Another eclectic list which sees ‘The Failed Silence’ alongside albums by Grimes, Haxan Cloak, Grizzly Bear, Max Richter and Blur.
Thank you all, we appreciate your support and for helping to spread our music!
