Limited copies of Excavated Relics are now available from Boomkat (link below)
Here's what they have to say about it:
"Gauzy, low-key, organically textured dub and wizened folk
explorations from Thomas Shrubsole, reviving his Sub Loam alias with
two ‘Excavated Relics’ from the archive circa 2009-2010.
The A-side’s Soil Surface’ speaks to Shrubsole’s signature
grasp of slow-moving sonic murk with nearly 10 minutes of endearingly
weary dub chords perfused with acidic percolations that appear to mimic a
sped-up (but still very slow) time-lapse image of soil dynamics, while
the other side’s 11 minute piece ’Stone Fragment’ catches him picking
out coruscating guitar strings and against peripheral percussion and
distant vocal drones in a style murkily resonating with the mystic
appeal of Zoviet France. Both are assuredly swaddled in layers of ferric
tape hiss. Both humbly worth your time."
