2 DISC MID-PRICE EDITION OF ENGINEERS' 2014 ALBUM 'ALWAYS RETURNING'

"Always Returning never wears out its welcome" - Q Magazine

Engineers, comprising of Liverpudlian multi-instrumentalist Mark Peters, celebrated German ambient artist/producer Ulrich Schnauss and London based drummer and composer Matthew Linley, have been creating mesmerising music with brilliantly shaded guitar textures and teasing lyrical ambiguities since 2004.

The band's previous albums garnered acclaim from all areas of the media - 2005's debut 'Engineers' ("hypnotic lullabies from beautific Brit newcomers" **** Q), 2009's 'Three Fact Fader' ("a blistering statement of intent" **** The Sunday Times), and 2010's swift follow-up 'In Praise Of More' ("should be given to most UK bands as an example of in making an album that is a joy to behold" 8/10 Clash); with BBC Music's Lauren Laverne stating "Everything they do is brilliant".

With German electronic genius, renowned producer/re-mixer and solo artist Ulrich Schnauss (Depeche Mode, Mojave 3, Death Cab For Cutie, Pet Shop Boys), joining Engineers as a full time member on their 2010's 'In Praise Of More' album his influence is clearly apparent on the tracks such as 'Innsbruck' and 'Smoke & Mirrors'.

This mid-price edition of 'Always Returning' comes as a 2 disc digipak with the second disc being an instrumental version of the album.

"Nu-gazers' stop-start journey hits a new high" Mojo "Engineers have been making brilliant records for nearly 10 years now..it's about time this lot got the credit they deserve" 8/10 NME "Wistful fourth album from revitalised dreampoppers" Uncut
