On 22nd January 2018, the incredible science fiction author Ursula K. Le Guin passed from this realm and ascended on to a new universe, leaving us and the literary world in mourning. Up until recently RVNG sub-label Freedom to Spend had been working with Ursula and her musical collaborator Todd Barton to unearth the sound world that was created to accompany her 1985 novel Always Coming Home. With the families encouragement the label is moving forward with this release, and invite you in to explore the music and poetry of the Kesh.
As Pete Swanson, one third of Freedom To Spend, stated, Ursula’s “legacy is her work which transformed the world, and this is another piece of the universe that her imagination birthed becoming real.”
Rest in power Ursula.
