What’s the story?

‘We need to save humanity, because no one else will’. The stark outlook at the beginning of Daniel Parsons’ third album as Amongst The Pigeons sets the scene for a 12-track salvo against the choppy waters we find ourselves navigating. It is a first-hand response to the pandemic, the destruction of the environment, social and racial injustice, and much more besides. It is delivered through his own inimitable set of gadgetry from a garden shed outside Worthing, with home-produced music whose message travels far and wide.

What’s the music like?

Silence Will Be Assumed As Acceptance has an extremely satisfying structure, featuring a raft of carefully chosen electronics but with Parsons’ own voice opening and closing. Some of the track titles are clearly borne of the last year – N.V.O.D. especially. Standing for Natural Vectors Of Disease, this track collaborates with

Review: Amongst The Pigeons – Silence Will Be Assumed As Acceptance

The first review of my new album …

iniquitous glory

Silence Will Be Assumed As Acceptance is the fourth album by eclectic electronica artist Amongst The Pigeons. The album was recorded in his ‘shedio’ between the summer of 2019 and the winter of 2020; a period of time which saw global lockdowns, international protests and upheaval in just about every aspect of daily life. That is very much reflected on the album, with lyrics from a number of guest vocalists referencing key movements, events and themes of the last year or so.
