    We had a tshirt design competition. The artist Billy Myles-Berkouwer made this incredible design all the way from Costa Rica.

    I can't imagine a better t-shirt.

about

Allison's Gate is the musical alias of Carolina McPhail. Originally from the Channel Islands but now based in South London, her music traces a line between ambient music, improvisational experiments, and sadcore crooning.

Following last year’s collection of broken fragments (Sink or Swim), and in preparation of some upcoming full-band recordings, Waves / Bona Fide is another collection of bedroom explorations. Themes of loneliness, rage, and painful loss abound in McPhail’s work, but are brought together here in a package that manages to be meditative and healing.

This collection is comprised of two parts. ‘Waves’ is concentrated around the lulls and flows of abstracted noises, delays and flutters, tender vocals flitting in and out of audibility. Sometimes calming, sometimes unsettling, but most often somewhere in-between. The last three tracks are ‘Bona Fide’, recordings of more traditional songs, with first-thought-best-thought sincerity barely obscured by a haze of lofi charm.
