Caught by the River

Spoken Word and Nature Disco Volume 7

12th October 2022

Tune into James Endeacott’s Morning Glory show on Soho Radio tomorrow morning from 10am for an exclusive first listen of Spoken Word and Nature Disco Volume 7. This latest in our run of irregular mixtapes is an aural autumn almanac; a confluence of voices and sounds that perfectly chimes with the season. At this Nature Disco, Sylvia Plath’s poetry drifts into Movietone’s swooning post rock; Tara Clerkin’s looping, spectral jazz gives way to the Gaelic singer Eilidh Cormack’s soothing reading of the Shivering River. Put together by Jeff Barrett and CBTR’s in-house sonic manipulator The Dubwood Allstars (King Tubby by way of the M62), and with artwork by the esteemed Caio Wheelhouse, Spoken Word and Nature Disco Volume 7 is the perfect soundtrack to the leaves falling and the days shortening. Just lie back and listen to the grass grow. 

Listen live to Soho Radio here.

Middler and Lunker-tier Caught by the River Steady subscribers will be getting a hand-finished CD copy of the mix through their letterboxes next week. To receive this and other recent perks, such as various print artefacts and our A Collection of Words from the Archive zine, you can take out a monthly or annual Caught by the River subscription here.
