Urthona From the elemental uplands of southwest England comes the heavy rural sound of Urthona. Using psychedelic feedback, drone, unorthodox tunings and mythologically charged field recordings, Urthona’s super-amped worldview takes in moorland, seascapes, extreme weather and ancient and modern ruins. Neil Mortimer is the band’s core member, for live shows joined by Mark Pilkington (Asterism) on synths and electronics and Michael J York on Breton pipes and flute.
