Our Song of the Day is from FRUK favourites Sproatly Smith. The Farmers Have Gone East opens to a radio archive report about the loss of land to development as farm land slowly disappears under concrete.

The closing field recording is a reminder of why we should hang on to what we land we can.
The track features on their 2012 release Times is n’times was which can be purchased on bandcamp here.
