Brand new EP from the mysterious Golau Glau collective for National Libraries Day. This band always have themes and intentions with their releases, they don't just make music for the sake of it, which is an inspiring motivation. It's good to have purpose other than for your own sake, more bands should take note.
This is a creepy, slow crawling ep. Sparse spidery beats propel sounds recorded from libraries around the UK in fetishitic, Anglophile hauntological fashion, and as an extention of that, it has a pared down industrial post punk sound. Beguiling atmospheredelia from England's dark Satanic mills.

Revenant Branch is an EP by Golau Glau for National Libraries Day 2012 on the Pin Factory label. This is the sound of the revenant library branch, the ghosts of dead libraries returning from the grave to remind us not to close any more.
Many of the sounds on the EP were recorded in public libraries across England that have now closed down.
National Libraries Day is one day devoted to all libraries – public libraries, school and university libraries, prison, national, law, business and commercial libraries. A nation-wide celebration of libraries, librarians and library staff in all sectors.
Golau Glau are working on a book about public libraries. We passionately believe in them as sources of culture, information and lifelong learning, and places of non-commercial, accessible society and sanctuary for all.
