The site has had a brief overhaul and tidy-up for the new year, which reminds me, happy new year to you all! As well as the new theme, there has been some general tidying up and maintenance. Regarding the music, there will be more coming your way soon. In the meantime, if you haven’t yet picked up a copy of MANTRA, there are still some CD’s available for those of you who prefer a physical format, and as ever, it is still available to stream and download on the German Shepherd Records Bandcamp page here.
Legendary music journalist Mick Middles has reviewed the MANTRA album for Sounds Magazine. The online review, gives the album a score of 9/10 and Mick comments that the album “retains a freshness that will stand repeated playings”.
“It is the case of Night Operations, right now, to marry everyday emotional observation to a musical sense of anxiety-fuelled hope.”
