“Rather than make up his own movies, Jenkins is happy to play the movies that are already running in our heads – and we are happy to let him do it. Every track shows the confidence of someone who knows exactly which buttons to push and when.”
The Wire

“…hallucinatory ’80s landscape of throbbing sci-fi electronica and luminous synthetic strings built around themes of deep space, suspended animation and sensory deprivation.”
Mojo

“A somnambulant trip through the cosmic void, Stasis is PCA’s strongest album to date.”
Shindig

A Year In The Country is a set of year-long journeys through spectral fields; cyclical explorations of an otherly pastoralism, the outer reaches of folk culture and the spectres of hauntology. It is a wandering amongst subculture that draws from the undergrowth of the land. As a project, it has included a website featuring writing, artwork and music which stems from that otherly pastoral/spectral hauntological intertwining, alongside a growing catalogue of album releases.

“…author Prince has pulled together a mass of material culled not only from the website and its associated albums, but also a great deal more that was written specifically for the book. And the result is spellbinding.”
Dave Thompson, Goldmine

“…the first book of it’s kind to catalogue all these disparate strands, many of which cross over time and space to influence one another.”
DJ Food

“…an essential field guide to a distinct aesthetic that remains loosely defined, like a fluttering night moth that would die if pinned down.”
Ben Graham, Shindig!
