Stumbleine crafts a dramatic and poignant web of sound with ‘Catastrophette’!



Catastrophette is the third single from ‘Deleted Scene’, the 8th album by UK producer Stumbleine (aka Peter Cooper).

Deleted Scene, overflows with beautiful nostalgia-tinged electronica. The album is steeped with cloud-like beauty, with opener and recent single I Can Stop Anytime I Like fusing addictive sampled vocals with soft, glassy guitars, as if a reflecting pool of the listeners’ memories.

Elsewhere on the album, Ursa Minor Sleeps Forever is fittingly sleepy, circling soft slow synth arpeggios in a dreamy haze, a sound built upon by Somnia to an epiphany-like string bed, never straying too far from Stumbleine’s serene haven of melodic grace, while on Catastrophette, Stumbleine crafts a more dramatic and poignant web of sound, as if running through the memories created by the rest of Deleted Scene.

On Catastrophette, the final album track, snippets of rnb vocals ebb and flow over a backdrop of guitar and strings, interspersed with dreamlike passages of spoken words.

‘Stumbleine’ is the alias of Peter Cooper. With roots in the UK post rock scene, the reclusive producer began blending slow dream-like pop with fractured lo-fi beats as Stumbleine in 2012. Melancholic rnb vocals ebb and flow above submerged guitar ballads. Sand blasted samples intertwine with broken beats to create music with a nostalgic fragile warmth. Stumbleine is known for a DIY ethic, releasing music directly to fans or via the independent label Monotreme Records.’

The new album as a whole is an escape to a dream-state of Stumbleine’s making, captivating, yet familiar, and completely enveloping. According to Peter, “Deleted scene refers to the memories that play over and over inside your own head, replaying hazy copies of hazy copies that evolve into a bittersweet fever dream. Everybody has their own unique collection of deleted scenes slowly distorting and fading away.”Deleted Scene will be released on June 14th digitally, as a CD in a colour printed slipcase cover and as a limited vinyl edition of 300 copies on 180 g white vinyl, which can be pre-ordered here:

Join the Daisy Jopling Band featuring local students for an adventure of history and music as they perform “The Northgate Story” July 12-14th, 2024. 

“The Northgate Story” is a musical celebration of history through music presented by Daisy Jopling and her Band. The concert will present the story of the historic Stern/Cornish estate, part of the Hudson Highlands State Park located in Cold Spring, NY.  With narration and performance, Daisy will tell us about the families who owned the site and how they shared their time and estate with youngsters. This event will support music education as local music students will perform as part of the event. 

Northgate the Stern/Cornish Estate:

Northgate, also known as “the old Cornish Estate” located in the Hudson Highlands State Park north of Cold Spring, NY is a popular hiking destination in the Hudson Valley. It was first put together by Sigmund and Dove Stern starting in the early 20th century by purchasing small farms near and around the Surprise Lake Camp. The Sterns were connected to the camp and Mr. Stern served on the board and donated land to them. After Dove’s passing in 1915 the site was leased then sold to Edward and Selina Cornish in 1917. The estate became a gentleman’s dairy farm under Mr. Cornish till shortly before his passing in 1938. The Cornish family did not use the site much after Edward Cornish’s death, and in 1958 a fire destroyed the residence. Central Hudson purchased the estate to build a power plant in 1963, but heard the public wishes that it not be built and it was sold and given to New York State parks to be part of the Hudson Highlands State Park in 1967.

Classical/rock violinist Daisy Jopling was born in London, and now lives in NY. She has toured to 54 countries around the world and recorded nine albums, two with BMG RCA Victor. Daisy was the first international violinist to perform a major concert at the Great Pyramids of Giza in Egypt.

She has collaborated with many international stars, including Bobby McFerrin and Hollywood’s Hans Zimmer, and her Solo work has included playing a concerto at the Royal Albert Hall in London at the age of 14, playing twice before 30,000 people at the opening of the Vienna Festival, touring with her band to 53 stunning concert halls in China, creating “Illuminance” on Bannerman Island, NY which aired on PBS in 2021 and 2022, and performing her own “Awakening” Concert at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center.
