about

Doubt and The Magnetic North are the third and fourth studio albums from Smallhaus - now released together as a double album by Bad Bat Records. Smallhaus is South East London-based guitarist, composer and electronic musician David Little. Doubt was originally recorded between late 2018 to mid 2019; The Magnetic North between December 2019-March 2020.

Doubt moves between styles and mood over 6 tracks - from ambient, drone and post rock through distorted psychedelia to minimalist piano and tuned percussion. Guitar, generative keyboard and percussion loops are combined and recombined, along with live improvisation to create a series of evolving lo-fi soundscapes, evoking memory, longing and loss.

The Magnetic North sees a return to long-form composition. The opening title track moves from a two chord Krautrock-inspired jam through to contemplative post-rock atmospherics, based around keyboard loops, glissando guitar and shifting electronics. The Magnetic North album concludes with two widescreen ambient guitar and synth drone pieces.

Doubt and The Magnetic North occupy similar sonic territory to Windy and Carl, Amp, Flying Saucer Attack, Grouper, Labradford and Abul Mogard. Tracks from Smallhaus’s second album, Lutra (Linear Obsessional, 2018) have featured on BBC6 Music, NTS and Resonance FM.
