Home Burial is the debut album from Northern Ireland’s Arborist, aka songwriter Mark McCambridge, a long standing favourite of MM since the release of his marvellous debut single Twisted Arrow in 2015. The album will see a release on the 11th November.

Ranging from bleak Americana to melodic indie rock, the songs on the album deal with death, ageing and family. Blending layered harmonies, atmospheric guitars, luscious strings with occasional brass flourishes, the music speaks of stark truths and follows in the footsteps of some of the masters of this genre like Leonard Cohen, Bill Callahan, and Jason Molina.

The first taste from it is a tale from the female perspective I Heard Him Leaving, a subtle take on a first person narrative with an emphasis on the small, telling details.

Have a listen.
