It's a great album - played it several times during these weird times and helped my inner state so much. I'm just so sorry I never received my 12" copy and for being treated by the label as a second-class customer. I'll try to stay happy with the digital formats, then.

To follow-on from the acclaimed Collocutor debut LP, 'Instead', Tamar (Collocutor) has written 'The Search' and together with her seven piece ensemble and On the Corner Records are currently in the process of finishing the album to have it released at the end of 2016.
In a recent interview with UK Vibe's Michael Edwards, Tamar shed some light on to the new Collocutor album, 'The Search'.
"The album title refers to searching for a better way to exist in the world, but that could be emotional, spiritual or more simply a move to a geographically different place. The last track is called ‘Arrival’ and hopefully suggests something positive for us to aim for in these unsettled times.
It’s an accidental concept album, the story of a journey. I didn’t start off with the intention of writing an album with a narrative theme, but as the music progressed the compositions naturally fitted together and there seemed to be a continuum between the pieces that developed into this story of a journey with a dark beginning and a hopeful end.
"Collocutor is an opportunity to explore musically all the cultural connections which are part of being a human being, particularly in the 21st century, in somewhere like London, where you do meet everyone from everywhere. If you’re open-minded you’ll have the opportunity to engage with them and find out which bits of each other’s cultures connect and make sense" – Tamar Osborn
I heard one track and had to buy their entire collection on BandCamp.
Coordination in the face of perpetual random motion. Constructive explosions in sound. What more could you ask for from a musical ensemble..? Peter Jones
