Recent quote from Steven Wilson -

Aviv is continuing Blackfield with my absolute blessing and at my suggestion. I didnít want him to be holding up his own muse for me, and the truth is that I simply donít have time to do all the things Iíve been doing for the last few years anymore, at least not on the continual basis that something like Blackfield deserves. The new material Aviv has written is great as always, and Iím still contributing some vocals and guitars, and mixing the album Ė but Iím just not in a position to give the time to write and tour for the band anymore.

A new song ("Pills") has surfaced on a KScope sampler and is already available in YouTube:

Sounds nice. Aviv Geffen is great - shame no SW though. I'll still be buying the record.

No SW? He is singing the verses (with low-fi effect) and he`s also providing harmony vocals in the chorus. And very probably he`s also playing some of the guitars.

I probably wasn't clear in that I was referring to the general make up of Blackfield these days with SW's role much reduced, as oppose to that particular track.

Just had my first listen to the new album. Have to say that first impressions are that it is unremarkable. It's ok but not that great and only just over 30 minutes long. Disappointing but maybe it will grow on me.

I've had a few listens now and I think there are some lovely moments on the album. However it is all a bit too short and just leaves me feeling that pretty much all of the songs could have developed a bit more. It sounds very much like the Aviv Geffen solo album and not like a Blackfield album.
I like it, but I am not wild about it.

Received my copy today and I know what you mean. There are some very strong tracks and some less so. It certainly is short - at 31 mins, that would be short even in the days of vinyl! The last album took a while to grow on me (seeing the songs live helped) so I'm hoping this will be the same. There is talk of some live dates early next year.

Just watched the Jupiter video - that sand artist is amazing! Shocked
