Brand new album from acclaimed and award winning Edinburgh folk and bluegrass collective. Atmospheric and experimental sounding roots music abound on this, their fifth, album. Vocally the collective have strong hints of Elbow but with folk/roots instrumentation.

January sees the release of the fifth Southern Tenant Folk Union album 'Hello Cold Goodbye Sun', a collection of new and original material written by five of the collective's members. With a more difficult and emotionally charged pre-production process than on previous albums the band have developed a set of songs that build on some of the soundscape folk from the acclaimed 4th album 'Pencaitland' as well as showcasing the growing songwriting, instrumental and vocal talent from within the band.

Originally proposed with a focusing theme of 'modern horror' (as a lyrical and a musical basis for a cohesive album with influence from John Carpenter, Fabio Frizzi and Goblin) the band's ideas diversified and led away before all coming back together finally in the recording studio (once again the album was recorded live in a circle of microphones by Lau sound engineer Tim Matthew). The discovery of Jed Milroy's talent on the clarinet feeds the claustrophobic atmosphere of tracks like 'Crash', 'Chest Freezer' and 'Conscience Falls'. Plus the important addition of guest percussionist Steve Fivey (on Cajon and Djemebe) drives the backbeat of tracks like 'Goodbye Sun', 'Men In Robes' and 'Days By The Seaside With Ice Cream'.
