Listen To New Land Observations


The Grand Tour by Land Observations, aka James Brooks, is now out. The follow up to 2012’s critically acclaimed debut album, Roman Roads IV-XI and, where that was concerned with the roads of communication and conquest that stretched across the former Roman Empire and Republic, the new album creates an imaginary travelogue through Western, Central and Southern Europe with reference to the historic Grand Tour, a traditional rite of passage for University graduates & the affluent young, finding popularity in the 18th century and commencing the idea of ‘tourism’ as we know it.


Land Observations will perform at Rough Trade East on Wednesday 30 July, and at The Proud Archivist, London on 26 August.
