Erm & Nickname's self-titled follow up to their 2015 debut on Arachnidiscs Recordings 'Woodland Ritual', is a more traditional album set of highly personal and cathartic songs. There are noticeable 1970's psychedelic, folk and left field rock influences throughout, and although improvisation still plays a big part, the arrangements are built more into fully formed songs.

"These acid ballads and woodland jigs force the Incredible String Band and Syd Barrett through a busy prism, colliding a vast array of ideas across every track." Tristan Bath, Spools Out.

"...tripped out space folk, Fairport riding the horse rotovator around the maypole. Watch out constable!" Paul Margree, We Need No Swords.

"Could be my favourite release of 2017" Jakob Rehlinger, Arachnidiscs.

The release essentially consists of two albums, 'Erm & Nickname' and it's companion piece 'Erm & Nickname Friends' which is a collection of remixes, cover versions and reinterpretations of the original source material, generously produced by some wonderfully talented friends of Erm, Nickname and Third Kind.
