“Where there is a disposition to dislike, a motive will never be wanting.”

The second of Bear & Walrus’ extended plays, July, 1817 is a slow and methodic examination of nature in the summer. Flowing harpsichord melodies, chirpy chiptune sounds and field recordings present textures reminiscent of birdsong and a thick haze of pollen.
July, 1817 is available both as a physical package and as a digital download. The package was designed and printed by Bear & Walrus, produced in a limited edition of twelve. It includes a hand silkscreened audio CD, four signed and numbered digital prints and a letter-pressed chipboard case.
