about

On this second Betwixt & Between tape, Jacken Elswyth presents 4 solo banjo peices - three improvisations, and one Appalachian dance tune. With Arkansas Traveller standing as a traditional fulcrum-point, the improvisations jump off into more exploratory territory - the first two wholly acoustically, with bowed banjo accompanied by shruti box drone, and the third introducing amplification to the mix, layering washes of feedback alongside banjo and shruti box.

On the other side, Pataphysical and Ed Luker contribute a perverse meditation tape. Pataphysical have crafted a lush ambient soundscape, over which Ed Luker takes us through a bizarre relaxation exercise. You do need this rest.

Pataphysical is an experimental electronic trio from London. Find more here: soundcloud.com/pataphysicaltransmission and here: pataphysical.bandcamp.com

Ed Luker is a London-based writer and poet. He runs the RIVET reading series and presents a show of the same name on Comet radio (m.soundcloud.com/user-394086594). His chapbooks are available here: cargocollective.com/edluker


The Betwixt & Between 2 mascot is a monopod - a creature with a single leg and a huge foot, with which they shield themselves from the heat of the sun. Again they are described in Pliny's Natural History, and feature on the Hereford Mappa Mundi.


'Jacken Elswyth continues her exploration of transitional identity, genre, gender, and cryptozoology via bowed and clawhammer banjo, improvisation, tradition, feedback, and drone. Side two's "meditation tape" provides unsettling respite' - fRoots

'a beautiful foray across multiple styles of sound... Jacken Elswyth charms her banjo... Trust Ed as he opens the mind to the garden he wants us to experience' - Lost in a Sea of Sound
