For me, the lockdown of 2020 will always stand out as a remarkable time partly for the viscerality of its terrors, but also because of its novel, eerie, sublime silence. It afforded me (and no doubt other fortunate loners) a respite from the incessant distractions that can get in the way of important things such as doing nothing – or recording music. The cancellation of all live commitments meant the prospect of a year's worth of itineraries, airport security, hotels and no sleep was erased, and for some time I experienced a simple happiness not familiar in my adulthood. In a way it reminded me of being a child, where one knows big and awful stuff happens on the horizon but the current moment is a blissful sanctuary. Without customary interruptions, time elapsed differently: Dostrotime. I recorded extensively during that unusual period and went on to use some of that material as the basis for the rescheduled live shows of '21 &' 22. These events were remarkable for their tangible atmosphere of jubilation that lockdown was over and this album is indebted to the exhilaration of those shows. It is an attempt to capture the peculiarity of music catalysed by lockdown being part of the celebration of lockdown's demise.

Just saw the mail. Includes a link to an audio called "XY.wav".

EDIT 1: Website has changed.

EDIT 2: Running the WAV file through an oscilloscope brings out what seems likely to be the album/EP title. Courtesy of @exitonly.

EDIT 3: The album is called Dostrotime. Thanks for the info @perunamuusi @logboy.

I uploaded a video of an oscilloscope visualization of this:


Looks like it says 'Dostronm' to me, must be the title of the album/EP.

If it’s anything like the last one I’d be very happy.

  • Consul changed the title to Dostrotime [2024]

Crazy timing, I was just listening to Be Up A Hello on the way home and thinking about how well its held up compared to his last few for me. The retro pixel style has me expecting this will follow the same vein? Super excited for this
