We're delighted to release "Rolling Like A Bullet", the second solo album by Andrew Ostler.

Andrew says: "This was created through a painstaking process of making sound-on-sound tape loops using old reel-to-reel tape machines, mostly with my contrabass clarinet. These were then layered up and arranged in the studio and augmented with modular synth sequences and rhythms."

This is a work of great subtlety and focus - alternating sections of drone and gentle synth pulses, but always developing, always moving forward.

The digital version is available now from all good streaming and download services; the vinyl is expected to ship out at the start of August.

"Instruments that sound good inspire better music, and it's a struggle to make music with bad-sounding instruments, irrespective of how talented you might be. Software instruments are no different: although they are usually discussed and sold in terms of their 'features'  what really makes you return to an instrument repeatedly is the much more elusive factor of inspirational sound quality.

"I don't know enough about programming to understand why some software tools fascinate you while others make you want to get another job, but I do know that when I use anything by ES I get excited by what I'm hearing. These tools have the sonic richness of great analogue instruments - with the features of innovative digital ones."
