alexissonice Pure nostalgia. Been in love with this album since I first heard it all those years a go. When I saw this on wax I just had to have it. I hope I can catch you on your tour this winter. Favorite track: We Grew Up Playing In The Fields Of England.

Swaffy Dear epic45, I love your music with all my heart. I wish your music was easier to find because ever since I bought Weathering I was in love. You have a way with mixing acoustic and electric textures so well. My favorite tracks on this album are the last two! Favorite track: The Trees And Lanes.

To mark it's 10th Anniversary, a subtly remixed and remastered re-release of epic45’s 'may your heart be the map' will be available for the first time on vinyl 23rd June 2017. Pre-orders are now being taken.

‘may your heart be the map’ stands out as a marked departure from a more edgy-experimental-ambient sound, as witnessed on ‘Drakelow’ (2006) and ‘England Fallen Over’ (2005), and sees epic45 concentrate on something more bucolic and innocent, as described by Jude Rogers in 2007 for Word Magazine “Their ghostly, fingerpicked guitars, sampled found sounds, memories of shoegazery and dusty electronica conjured up old British films – and gave the Black Country it's very own Boards of Canada”.
