The New Brian Eno and Kevin Shields 12"

This is incredible.

One of this year's record store day purchases is the 12" by Brian Eno and Kevin Shields. 2 tracks - 'The Weight of History' and 'Only Once Away My Don't - totalling 18 minutes.

It's almost ambient, but there's such a throbbing power, intensity and force coming out of the tracks that my turntable can barely contain the sound. It is, to use a phrase of Julian Cope's, Ambient Metal.
