Alumbra Tides by Sam Hamilton

The title PALA comes from the fictional utopian island state of Aldous Huxley's novel "Island". not cos I adhere to utopian idealism or agree with Huxley...  but because vinyl records are round in shape, and islands are, more often than not, also round in shape..  and I like islands, and the idea of islands and the infinite meanings the idea of  the island plays in our minds. May this record be an island in itself.
