A selection of UK-based music, all released in 2014, which touches upon themes of landscape, time consciousness, folklore, hauntology and uncanny narratives. In other words, a soundtrack to the Unofficial Britain year.
Unofficial Britain is a hub for unusual perspectives on the landscape of the British Isles, bringing together music, poetry, art and stories. Go there to discover urban legends, arcane practices, alternative histories, re-imagined pasts, lost states, abandoned trails, unexplored nooks, cryptozoological beasts, haunting soundscapes, unreliable narrators, hallucinatory visions, analogue trips, contrary accounts and aimless wanders.
