Seeland were formed by Tim Hutton (ex Broadcast) and Billy Bainbridge (ex Plone) out of the ashes of the Midlands retro futurist scene of the mid 90's. Given the fact that they have named themselves after a Neu! track and based upon their previous history, you should already have a pretty good idea of what to expect. And Man, they don't let us down.
"Library" is a warped pop ballad that started out as an attempt to emulate Delia Derbyshire but ended up like a Scott Walker song produced by Conny Plank. Flipside, "Call The Incredible" is like a lost 60's psychedelic folk tune beamed in from the moon.
This was released at the tail end of last year and the album followed in March 2009. It's all really good and I'll be posting a few more things from the band to prove it!
Top pop fact: The cover was designed by Julian House, in-house designer of the wondrous Ghost Box CDs.
