This was intended to be a direct follow up from the Contour album and thus follow in the contemporary Berlin School theme. However, music composition can sometimes go in very different directions once the record button is hit. This collection starts off in a familiar fashion but ends up, I think, closer to my older material. Indeed, I'm expecting the tune police to be kicking down my door very shortly!

There is almost no vocal work on this album at all. The closest thing is the ethereal and twisted vocal samples played on a Roland V-Synth.

I should add that the title of the album has nothing to do with landlines in the telecommunications sense. I am referring to the more ethereal landlines that are more akin to ley lines - these lines join places of significance together, whether by passage of feet, natural boundaries or something more mystical.
