‘OMBILICAL’ THE NEW ALBUM BY TEXTILE RANCH, AVAILABLE NOW  • ORDER HERE

Second Language is delighted to announce the release of a new album by label founder and ex-Piano Magician Glen Johnson under his Textile Ranch moniker.   

‘Ombilical,’ (French for ‘umbilical’ no less) could be considered an exercise in, literally, navel-gazing, as it finds Johnson far removed from the introspective guitar-led songsmithery of his former group, Piano Magic and immersed in his love of electronic composition.

Originally intended for release in 2018 and then again in 2019 (the letter-pressed sleeves bear either year accordingly), unhappy with the results, Johnson junked at least 2 prior drafts of the album before settling on this final version. Guests here include Amanda Butterworth (aka Mücha), Oliver Cherer (Dollboy/Gilroy Mere), Ola Szmidt and Franck Alba (ex-Piano Magic).

‘Ombilical’ comes as an Arigato Pak, courtesy of Stumptown Printers, Oregon, letter-pressed by New North Press, London. Initial copies are accompanied by a 10 track bonus disc of synchronous recordings, ‘Prostheses.

You can order the album directly from Bandcamp here: https://textileranch.bandcamp.com/album/ombilical
