First release on Polytechnic Youth for 2018, (after a jaw dropping 21 releases last year!) sees a first larger scale, vinyl release for the mighty Heartwood Institute. Preceded by a pair of wonderful, yet small run cassette and CDR releases, Jonathan Sharp's esteemed HI project deservedly receives a wider scale outing here....

Entitled Secret Rites', imagine if you can, an unholy collision of TG style proto industrial, Kosmische / kraut grooves and 70's folk horror soundtracks. Secret Rites' delves deep into a series of forgotten occult documentaries from the late sixties and early seventies, The Power Of The Witch', Witchcraft '70' and The Legend Of The Witches. Focusing on the superstars of the period: Alex & Maxine Sanders, self appointed King and Queen of the Witches. A hauntological dive into a time when the occult was making inroads into mainstream media, truly the Age of Aquarius.......

A wonderfully free-flowing, evolving record that grows with each listen and a fine start to the New Year for both artist and label. A one off pressing of 300 vinyl LPs.

What works is Heartwood's flair for isolating the listener from the outside world and dropping you deep into a well of senses cheating trickery, the sounds cold and detached disfigure and shape shifting to cast looming shadows of disturbia and paranoia, a portal to an underworld where legends, ghost stories and folklore are very much a reality.'
