video premiere: Barry Walker – Ediacaran Moonrise
Getting some serious vintage nature doc/educational filmstrip nostalgia from this meditative gem from Barry Walker's glorious new record Diaspora Urkontinent, coming soon via our friends at Driftless.

Whether this constant state of flux is deliberate or simply the function of an inherent adventurous/restless streak (I suspect it's the latter), Herring's shapeshifting fluidity and apparent perpetual motion have made her one of the most exciting and versatile young dance music producers around...
