"Quite possibly one of the most beautifully constructed songs in quite some time." -- Prefix Mag

"Dreamy 1980s new wave meets glacial electronica on the Bristol producer's beautiful new single."
Hot Tracks -- The Sunday Times

Bristol, UK electronic artist Stumbleine premieres a new video via XLR8R today from the genre-defying full length debut, Spiderwebbed. The clip for the song "Capulet" is available to watch/share HERE.

XLR8R also recently featured the song, "Honeycomb" -- available for download/streaming HERE -- and named it #5 of their Top 20 Downloads of November. The album can also be streamed in its entirety courtesy of the magazine's site.

Previously, Prefix Mag hosted the track, "The Beat My Heart Skips" features vocals by CoMa and is available to stream/share HERE. And, RCRD LBL launched Stumbleine's lush and hazy revision of Mazzy Star's 90s hit "Fade Into You" available to stream/download HERE. UK media continue to praise the album, with frequent plays on BBC Radio 1 as well as rave reviews in Mojo, Q Magazine, The Sunday Times, Clash Magazine, et al. 

Emerging from Bristol's ever-fertile music scene (perhaps most famous for legends like Massive Attack, Portishead and Tricky, but also widely considered "Britain's most musical city"), Stumbleine has built a sizable following in less than a year with several self-released EPs and a recent compilation album, in addition to collaborative outings with fellow producer ASA. He also reports for active duty as one third of dubstep envelope pushers Swarms, whose music has found favor among tastemaker BBC DJs such as Mary Anne Hobbs.

On Spiderwebbed, his enrapturing, genre transcending full length debut; Stumbleine beautifully showcases the multifaceted nature of his music, seamlessly weaving fractured beats, synths, hazy distorted guitars and soulful vocals to create glowing, expansive sonic vistas. In keeping with the album's title, the music hangs gossamer like, a delicate suspension of sound; beautifully anchored to an array of solid syncopated beats.

Guest vocalists CoMa and Steffaloo contribute their ample talents to the dreamy "The Beat My Heart Skips" and a cover of Mazzy Star's "Fade Into You", and Birds of Passage lend warmth and poignancy to "Catherine Wheel." Elsewhere, silky, spectral R'n'B vocals spin plaintively through the shimmering "Capulet" and "Solar Flare", whilst the chilled, sweeping cadences of "Honey Comb" and "The Corner Of Her Eye" offer perfect counterweight to the taut urban swing of "If You" and "Cherry Blossom."

Spiderwebbed is available November 13th via Monotreme Records on CD and download as well as 180 gm vinyl LP, which comes with a free copy of the album CD.
