Taking inspiration from both travel and the mathematics of motion, Kinematic is Longstone's 8th studio album. It features a full and varied library of sound sources, acquired by the band over their 20 plus years of gigging and recording. Ranging from circuit bent toys and home-made noise generators, to 4 part woodwind sections and bowed found percussion, there is plenty to keep the fellow traveller enthralled.
