First EP from the forthcoming album Alterations. Contains the naggingly catchy philosophical disco of THE DEATH OF COPYRIGHT and its almost-classical counterpart track from the album, THE FORECASTER.
For an in depth commentary about all the tracks from the album, see the 'alterations revealed' page on Mark's official website: www.marknorthfield.com
The handmade animation video for the EP's title track - lovingly created by Mark over several increasingly late nights - can be seen in all its wordy glory on YouTube. www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0NkZXx69jM
This EP also contains an old-skool 12" style 'stretched out' mix of another track from the album, HEADLONGING.
The fourth track here should be a bleakly beautiful cover of ABBA's THE DAY BEFORE YOU CAME, but as Bandcamp doesn't permit covers to be sold, it has been replaced in this store by an exclusive instrumental version of Headlonging (Stretched Out).
The Day Before You Came can be found on the EP listing in most of the usual online stores (iTunes, emusic, Amazon etc) and also CD Baby, who are officially warmer and cuddlier than any of the aforementioned: www.cdbaby.com/cd/marknorthfield2
