We are over the moon to announce new a signing to Seed: Sancho.
Masterminded by Paul Hanford from Dorset (formerly part of 'Brothers in Sound') this 9-piece band combine jagged folk musings and krautrock with organic electronics and hold it all together with a true feeling of British nostaligia. Their debut album 'Mystery Year' is set for CD & mp3 release on Seed on January 29th 2007, featuring a video for the track 'As Light Came, They Fled' by the Paper Cinema
“It takes a while to grow on you, but slowly but surely the album reveals its charm. There’s certainly a lot more going on production wide than immediately meets the eye. A fine debut.”

“arrives with bags of dynamic self-confidence… A surprising, subtle and intoxicating 40 minutes, rather than the mysterious year of the title.”
“Mystery Year is a nicely varied bunch of music… the thirteen tracks guarantee never a dull moment in sight. Uplifting music from a highly diverse supermarket of music. Very pleasant!”
“Calm, contemplative music full of the atmosphere of a winter evening shrinking into the fog… rural beauty and nostalgia, the music breathes the feeling of a marvellous memory form a past time.”
“Mystery Year is an extraordinarily passionate and deep album. Sancho employ a huge variety of sounds, flawlessly mixing electronic with acoustic to produce an awe inspiring flow of music.”
“Mystery Year is less songs than meandering drone, post-rock, and melancholic ballad settings, the kind of album where a zither or bouzouki is just as likely to appear as a melodica or glockenspiel.”
"Candid, Softly Psychedelic...Sancho's Music is still young, but yet very personal"
