Digibook CD. Currently celebrating their 40th anniversary year, Sheffield-based In The Nursery announce a brand new studio album.

Entitled 'HUMBERSTONE', the family surname of core group members Klive and Nigel, it is a deeply personal record that sees them in reflective mood as a year in which they also turned 60 comes to a close.

"We have always needed a reason to make music, a rationale for its creation and existence," they state.

"As composers, the two of us are conscious of the connection between music and memory. The loss of family is a strong emotion, one that we've harnessed to revisit our past.

Our antecedents have been a catalyst and a stimulus for this new album and it has been good to reconnect and remember." 'Émigré (The Dressmaker)' opens proceedings, its orchestral post-punk vibe packed with high drama as it depicts the tragic drowning at sea of hundreds of emigrants following the burning of a ship off the Cape of Good Hope in the late 19th Century, including Humberstone family ancestors en route to New Zealand.

By way of contrast, it is immediately followed by the gorgeously chilled 'Ektachrome (The Animator).
