This is a remix that Chris has done of the song ‘Birds Flew Backwards’ from the bands last album ‘Kingdom of Rust’ .

Birds Flew Backwards
If you aren’t familiar with Chris’s work (although if you have watched or listened to any significant natural history broadcast in the last decade you unknowingly will be) I suggest you check out his website and that of his label, Touch, where you will find some of his amazing recordings.
Also on a Doves tip, The Caught by the River website has announced that the second in their series of ornithologically themed music compilations will be going out to their members on Wednesday the 24th. This time the tracks have been selected by Jimi Goodwin (from the aptly named Doves. Once again the artwork has been done by Matt Sewell and features Jimi’s songbird of choice, the robin.
