Feelgood Friday vibes with this 4 track EP of dreamy electronica. The most liquid of drum and bass, new age of New Age breaks, old school arm raising piano line euphoria & an after party come down classic to round off all that excitement from Biodive for Church
Future Museums - Tea Service (Proceeds to The Lilith Fund)
Texan Neil Lord and his Future Museums project are on a roll this year with another great release of outer spacial synth work and consciousness expanding ambience this time for the, surprisingly still necessary cause - The Lilith Fund for Reproductive Equity.
Burnt Paw - Lunar Vortex Incantations (Bandcamp)
Fine fingerpicked, Celtic myth rooted, acoustic guitar conveyed, animism reviving folk with transtlantic echoes & a distant Eastern gaze from Edinburgh's Burnt Paw on this well priced self release if supporting great, truly independent music is your thing
Bantam Lions - Can We Come Together (Bandcamp)
Check out this pure of heart, flashback inducing house music EP bringing a tear to this old raver's eyes - uplifting, unifying, life affirming, smile inducing, emotional dance music that should be the end of night tune for every outdoor festival this year from Bantam Lions. Spread the love.
Brenda Ray - Naffi years 1979-1983 (Em Records)
Bowl into the week with the oddly pricey, but nevertheless maverick & masterful, good old days sounds of Brenda Ray+crew & their adventures in lofi, pop sprinkled, post punk attitude & funk injected early digi dub fusions, recorded to 4 track cassette.
Ciro Berenguer - El Mar De Junio (Eilean Records)
Sunday listening sorted as Ciro Berenguer Music's manipulated string notes, field recordings and bowed psaltery (look it up, I had to!) condense into wispy electro acoustic ambient clouds on a hot day before delighting & refreshing with their light sonic shower. Praise also to weather gods Eilean Rec.
