The 'Between Dust and Desire' album is a 10 track, 45 minute, debut
by Stephen Stannard (after previously releasing solo album under the names
The Rowan Amber Mill and Making Tea For Robots). An album of songs charting a course between dust and desire, taking in: the call of summer; the regret of Autumn; an AM radio as it drifts between stations on a long car journey; the French New Wave cinema; Paris; Paris / Texas; the glow of red sandstone; an old, faded copy of The Grapes of Wrath with copious pencil annotations; and the scent of the pine forest in the heat of Summer.
