Hugely demanded reissue from On The Corner Records - 'Instead' is the debut LP from Tamar Osborn's superlative Collocutor ensemble, drawing on trajectories of sound that have been refracted over time & space and expressed at this vanishing point. Tamar Osborn plays with a studied talent and writes her passion into the arrangements that make Collocutor the songs of herself. Tumultuous journeys over eras and epochs to swirling carpet rides in places and spaces, night through day.
