After whittling it down to this:
and (as I mentioned in
@ruffers thread yesterday) not being able to find a label to press up some physical I’ve decided to self-release my DEBUT LP digitally
It won’t be on all your streaming platforms until the ‘official’ release date which is Sept 15th but I’ve stuck it on Bandcamp so you can get it now if you fancy
An eclectic, psychedelic mix of ambient, club & soundtrack electronica with heavy doses of screwed-down futurefunk…made using analogue synthesizers & drum machines
I’m quite proud of it - I think it’s quite strong imhho
Give it a listen yeah
Are you tagging me here to listen to this
I guess maybe I am (I want everyone to listen to it of course) but really I’m acknowledging that your comments yesterday gave me the push to release it myself instead of just sitting on it which really would be a waste so, thanks
First impressions are that it kinda sounds like Royksopp. Don’t know why but it’s also a bit more mellow that I expected. Nice though.
I thought you’d be the first one on this, cheers for your input along the way man, much appreciated
@anon82218317 thanks DD
@Ruffers Royksopp are definitely a deep down influence somewhere. Actually, I was listening to shuffle & Caribou’s Odessa from Swim came on & for a good couple minutes (before he stars singing) I could have sworn it was a Royksopp track. I guess they’re more influential than they’re given credit for
Just bunging it on my iPod now
if it’s anywhere NEAR as good as Where does a child hide in a small town like this? then I am
Tommy Afterglow is making me happy
I’ll have a listen to this later on!
Where would one find your back catalogue?
I dig the sixth track, reminds me more of early 90s Aphex Twin
all the currently available releases are on the Bandcamp
There is a gate beyond the gate of Death,
Beyond the gate of everlasting Life,
Beyond the gates of Heaven and Hell
Whereon but to believe is horror !
Whereon to meditate engendereth
Even in deathless spirits such as I
A tumult in the breath,
they are also all (or most of them) on Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music/iTunes, Google Play & Deezer - just search ‘Body in the Thames’
yeah, to be honest I haven’t really progressed much in the
checks calendar three years since I did that track
Tommy Afterglow… is probably closest to that one in terms of style
Good man - thanks for the dl
@ruffers… no 90s Aphex Twin tracks were harmed in the making of this album
oh, sorry I meant this is pretty pretty good! I love this wonky first track.
oh no, you’ve seen through my flimsy charade…
also, the ‘featured track’ function on Bandcamp means that it starts with track 2 - the opener is a kind of ambient palette cleanser, don’t skip it !
