"The first Make Mine Music release of 2008 is the debut EP by Still Crescent, entitled "The Railway Terminus, The October Twilight, The Circulatory System". Still Crescent is the new moniker of Sébastien Wright, whose previous releases on Make Mine Music came out under the name August Stars.

August Stars' two EPs "Music for Twilight" and "Midwinter" garnered praise for their unsettling and chilling ambience; with Still Crescent, Sébastien takes these sounds further into darker territory, with the debut EP offering up 30 minutes of desolate, unsettling and highly atmospheric ambience. The EP is largely a product of Sébastien working shifts, both literally and in terms of the sound of the EP - largely recorded in the small hours of the night after completing evening shifts, the EP's tracks capture the strange sense of dislocation and social isolation that one can feel, especially during the long winter months. For those who remember the classic Virgin compilation "Isolationism", Still Crescent wouldn't sound out of place on there."
