Sailing Ships & Tarot Cards

I recently released an album on New Zealand record label Rattle Records. Sailing Ships & Tarot Cards was originally the score for Australian independent feature film The Burning Kiss but was refashioned into a concept album. The album features members of exotica band SLIDE NIGHT and incorporates mysterious sound bites and location sounds mixed with 1960s exotica, Delia Derbyshire inspired sci-fi music, classic Bernard Herrmann and a pinch of John Zorn - tropical noir nightmare!

See below for ABC radio Melbourne's Lindy Burns featuring music from the album.
