Pye Corner Audio Hollow Earth | Vinyl
Conceived as a sequel to 2016's Stasis -- which itself was a sequel to 2012's Sleep Games -- Hollow Earth continues Martin Jenkins' trend of honing his Ghost Box releases without sacrificing any of Pye Corner Audio's evocative power. At over an hour long, the album allows him to give equal time to the most kinetic and abstract sides of his music. Jenkins delivers a little of each on the album's title track: Glimmering chords soon give way to a four-on-the-floor beat and choral vocals that serve as a beguiling prologue for the rest of Hollow Earth's excursions. Jenkins' music remains as vivid and distinctive as it was during the Black Mill Tapes days, and he provides glimpses of an adventure as he conjures narrow passages, vast caverns, and mazes in this subterranean playground. "Claustrophobe" crawls along on growling, low-to-the-ground synths; a soaring, distant melody draws listeners deeper into "The Seventh Labyrinth;" and "Dancing Shadows"' woody percussion and flickering tones live up to the track's name perfectly. Elsewhere, Hollow Earth proves that Jenkins' balance of beat-driven tracks and experimental ones grows increasingly deft. "Mindshaft"'s house-tinged rhythms and busy arpeggios are feverish but never frantic, while the insistently loping beat that propels "Core Sample" finds the sweet spot between driving and hypnotic. On its quieter moments, Hollow Earth combines the mysterious feel of the hauntology that emerged in the late 2000s and early 2010s with the pulsing synthwave that crested in popularity a few years later. Alongside the stark, ominous textures of "Quad Tape Substrate," "Buried Memories" bridges the past and future of electronic music with style, and "Deeper Dreaming"'s evocation of vintage library music underscores why Ghost Box is such a perfect fit for Pye Corner Audio's music. On Hollow Earth, Jenkins lets the different sides of his music surface and recede in organic ways that make it equally entrancing for the mind and body. ~ Heather Phares

Daredevil Records use The Planet app powered by Shopify to neutralize your shipping emissions and removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Daredevil Records has committed to donating the most amount of money possible from your order to offset C02 emissions.
This includes funding innovative solutions such as direct air capture and mineralization, and a small portion of nature-based carbon removal.
These funds companies such as 44.01, Carbofex, CarbonBuilt, CarbonCure, Charm Industrial, Climeworks, DroneSeed, Grassroots Carbon, Heirloom Carbon, Loam, Noya, Pachama, Planetary, Remora, Running Tide, and Sustaera.
Carbon Removal Process
Carbon removal is the process of capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and then storing it.
For example, if a truck or a plane that delivers your shipment releases 1 kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, and you are subscribed to the Planet app, then Shopify ensures that 1kg of CO2 is also sucked from the atmosphere and stored away using solutions and technologies in Shopify Sustainability Fund.
There is a fast-growing and evolving sector with many carbon removal technologies in different stages of development. These technologies include nature-based solutions, such as reforestation and soil carbon sequestration and more high-tech solutions, such as direct air capture and mineralization.
How Shipping Emissions Are Calculated
The Planet app combines data from our store with industry data and peer-reviewed models to estimate how much CO2 your shipments release into the environment. Because the Planet app makes sure that CO2 shipping emissions are removed entirely, all values that are used in the data models are rounded up.
Review the following table to learn more about the which data is used to determine shipping emissions:
If primary value isn't available
Weight of the shipment
An average shipment weight
Distance traveled according to the tracking data
Straight-line distance between the origin and destination address, multiplied by an uncertainty factor of 1.5
Type of transportation
Truck or plane carbon emissions, determined by speed and distance
To estimate your emissions, the Planet app uses order tracking data associated with the tracking number assigned to the shipment. If the tracking number isn’t available or the shipping carrier isn’t supported, then the Planet app multiplies the estimated emissions by an uncertainty factor of 1.5. The uncertainty factor helps make sure that all your emissions are removed. If any data is inconsistent or missing, then the Planet app uses a reasonable maximum value instead.
For example, suppose that you ship a package from Boston to New York. The straight-line distance is 305.94 km, but the shortest road route is around 350 km. If tracking data is available, then the Planet app uses the exact distance traveled.
However, if no tracking data is provided, then 305.94 km is used in the base calculation, and the resulting emissions would be multiplied by 1.5. This calculation accounts for variations in the route, such as distances traveled from post offices and distribution centers, and the route taken by the courier to deliver the package to your customer's door.
Considerations for using the Planet app
Review the following considerations for the Carbon Neutral Shipping Planet app:
- The models and estimates aren’t exact, but the Planet app overestimates your emissions to make sure that they’re entirely removed.
- The Planet app removes only carbon (CO2) emissions that account for 95% of the climate impact from burning fossil fuels for transportation. Other emissions such as CH4, N2O, and GHG aren’t removed.
- Orders that are shipped by sea transportation (we do not ship any orders by sea) don't generate the data required to accurately calculate emissions. Instead, industry-accepted alternative methods are used to calculate emissions.
- The Planet app currently focuses on addressing emissions from shipping-related transportation.
