1 inch: ½ mile was conceived on the South Downs, near our home city of Brighton.

A Map is included with the album or can be downloaded here detailing a walk through a secluded, half-forgotten valley on the fringes of the city - for us, the ideal environment in which to hear it. Before you begin the walk, please download free bonus track, A Lost Village here.

‘ This album is pure genius ’
Sunday Telegraph, 5/5 (Top 10 pop CDs of 2010)
‘ Ghostly, weird and enveloping electronica ’
Sunday Times (Download of the week)
‘ Epic and immersive, 1 Inch: 1/2 Mile captures something profound about an England caught anxiously between technology and nostalgia ’
Uncut, 4/5
‘ Grasscut brilliantly re-imagine the landscape in glitches, crashing percussion, snatches of old 78s and disconcerting sampled voices ’
Q, 4/5
‘ Folk song samples, the plummy pronunciation of BBC announcers and plenty of talk about the war [meets] big beats, bleeps and buzz saw analogue synths ’
Clash, 9/10
‘ A vastly accomplished piece of modern psychedelic pop… As a rapprochement between the unnecessarily divided worlds of electronica and 'proper' music it is a complete success. Absolutely lovely ’
The Arts Desk
‘ Grasscut are the perfect riposte for those who doubt electronic music's capacity to be romantic, nostalgic and human ’
Mojo, 4/5 (Electronica album of the month)
‘ One of that select band of artists who are making genuinely daring music that still remains an accessible and enjoyable listen ’
Tom Robinson, BBC 6music

The Fly, 4/5
