2022 REPRESS – second edition double black vinyl LP with revised red artwork.

Erratics & Unconformities is the first album by Craven Faults.

It follows three EPs: Netherfield Works, Springhead Works and Nunroyd Works. Long-form analogue electronic journeys across decades and continents, and swathes of post-industrial northern Britain. 

The journey on Erratics & Unconformities picks up where Netherfield Works left off. We take the canal towpath out of the city. We fork north shortly afterwards. Is this where it started? The terrain gradually becomes more rugged. Familiar. Wild. Evidence of human activity is less immediate in this glacial landscape. It’s there if you seek it. But easy to ignore. If you listen carefully, you can still hear the weight of the ice-sheet carving its way through the rock. 

Everything in its own time. The output from the old textile mill Craven Faults calls home is no longer as linear as it once was. There was no clear start point for the project, rather simply rediscovering the joy in experimentation with no material goals. Some of the recordings that make up Erratics & Unconformities go back almost seven years. Tracks have come and gone in that time. They don’t leave until they’ve undertaken a stringent quality control process. It started slowly, but has picked up momentum in the last eighteen months. Recorded and re-recorded to the correct level of imperfection, and then left to breathe. Mixed and re-mixed. Carefully compiled when the time was right.

The journey is just as important as the destination.

On Erratics & Unconformities: 

“If Krautrock felt like a reaction to Germany’s totalitarian past, a new chapter defined by freaky optimism and a race to the margins, Craven Faults also feels like a historical reckoning of sorts: a cold elegy to Britain’s industrial heyday” 8/10 Uncut (lead review)

“Glacial landscapes a go-go on mesmerising debut by Yorkshire producer” 4/5 Mojo

“Often feeling less like the work of human hands than sounds breathed out by the moors around their Yorkshire home, the drones have an almost geological weight and pace” 9/10 DJ Magazine

“Immersive works that have been assembled by a painstaking master of his craft” 9/10 Long Live Vinyl 

“Floating somewhere between ’60s visions of dystopian future, and an increasingly dystopian present” The Vinyl Factory
