Premiere: Lull ‘That Space Somewhere’ – Dark Ambience From Mick Harris, Releases 2nd December via Cold Spring

The legend that is Mick Harris needs very little in the way of an introduction to our readership. Although more commonly known for bashing the skins on seminal Napalm Death records, he’s actually been pulverising us with his sonic abuse from Scorn and Lull for a hell of a lot longer than he was actually a member of the grindcore stalwarts.

Now today, it is with great honour that The Shaman can bring you the premiere of the new Lull album That Space Somewhere. Set to be released on 2nd December through Cold Spring Records, it’s the first new release under the Lull moniker in fourteen years as Harris ploughs the murky depths of dark ambient soundscapes with four expansive tracks and a near-hour run time.

About the album, Harris comments, ‘I haven’t made Lull records since 2007 so… with this pandemic, I have time on my hands. I’ve used that time, I think, to the best. Going to the music-room is pretty much an everyday thing to me. Which has been the best thing because I’ve not been able to do this since the ‘90s when I had various studios… Since the lockdown I had all this time on my hands and I created a lot of good music, which I’m actually happy with.’

More On Lull & ‘That Space Somewhere’

Cold Spring Records proudly present the first new album in 14 years from Lull – the pioneering, isolationist dark ambient project of Mick Harris (Scorn, Fret, ex-Napalm Death).

Lull was conceived by Mick Harris in 1990, in an attempt to create music that would stretch, if not forsake entirely, the structures of conventional music by developing and exploring sound without beats.

Mick Harris when speaking with Peek-A-Boo Magazine says about Lull, ‘I finally heard the way of recording, making profound sounds. Lull is purely something I can get lost in, as far as trying to create these imaginary spaces. And that’s what I always tried to do – to create. I’m a lover of sounds. I love collecting sounds. Playing with those sounds using various software until I created something new from that sound. Which for me ended being what I call ‘a droner’ or ‘a drift’, I’d use those to create a piece of music, or a soundscape. That’s what I’m doing with Lull. Just trying to create soundscapes. And to this day, I still, absolutely love doing that’.

Harris continues, ‘I’m a fisherman. It gives me a lot of space. It gives me immense pleasure. For me it’s about going to the river. I like moving water. The seasons change, the river changes with the seasons. It clears my mind, gives me ideas, gives me the space to be by myself and with nature… just listening to the sounds around me.’

Then concludes by adding, Lull is quite natural for me. It’s an extension of me. Drifting. Just going to darkness. Into a space. Lull is drifting and droning, discovering more and more what can be done with sound. These soundscapes hugely appeal to me’.
