Mark's superb 'Dark Weave' LP was a Friends of the Fish release - this is his follow-up...

Mark McDowell’s 6th studio album is a full band production – recording as Mark McDowell and friends – that builds on the sonic palette of 2017’s acclaimed Dark Weave.

'Breakthrough' balances themes of uncertainty and euphoria – from life in dystopian living spaces to escape into the haunting beauty of the fields and woods. A celebratory summer festival, the lurking menace of city violence, a hallucinatory road trip and fears of impending cold war combine in a panorama of 21st Century hopes and fears.

As with Dark Weave, the album features the unique instrumentation of the ‘Friends’ – from bouzouki to minilogue synthesizer – all of whom contribute to the sound of a band that understands its roots but is always moving forward.

the LP will be sold direct by the artist - NOT by Fruits de Mer - more details soon - make sure you're on our mailing-list so you don't miss out CLICK HERE
