Folklore Tapes take a break from the calendar customs series and the extensive early editions reissue campaign with one of the most spellbinding and fascinating projects they have produced yet. Starting the new chapter in the label, Megalithic Monuments begins with a new album and booklet of music researching the mythical Stanton Drew stone circle.

Produced by label heads Ian Humberstone and David Chatton Barker, and following Ian's lavishly produced Black Dog traditions of England boxset. Megalithic Monuments looks into the age old tradition of stone circles with this entry focusing on Stanton Drew. Using a mixture of spoken word passages, homespun ambient library instrumentation and music box electronics that recall Sidney Sager and the Ambrosian Singers commercially unreleased and harrowingly creepy soundtrack to the cult TV show Children Of The Stones (a big influence on Folklore Tapes). The LP features some deeply personal sounding, melancholic music that points upwards at 45 degrees and after a few spins really begins to unravel the mysteries surrounding the stones at the centre of Stanton Drew.

As always it comes with a beautifully designed booklet accompanying the record, so the listener can delve into the label's investigations, and comes as a big recommendation for anyone into Paper Dollhouse, Stewart Lee or Julian Cope...
