Everyone with a few pennies to spare in these hard times should consider sharing said pennies with Laura Sheeran, helping to create her new album. Here’s what she had to say about it:
Hello dear friends! My debut double album “Lust of Pig and the Fresh Blood” has been in development for almost 4 years now and is ready for final mixing, mastering and pressing. By making a pledge you can help this happen. You will also have an opportunity to get exclusive access to a wide variety of irresistible extras (check out that list – there’s some interesting stuff there!), as well as receiving a free download of the double album on release so that you can listen to it while you wait for hard copy goods to arrive in the post… With your valued support providing the final push, the double album will be released in September on CD, vinyl and as a digital download. So if you like what you’ve heard of my material so far, take the pledge – help me give birth to this baby! A percentage of all pledges will be donated to De Paul Ireland, a totally worthwhile and necessary organisation that has been making a big difference to the lives of many.
I really enjoy throwing on this album when I’m chilling in my room, looking out the window and smoking a cigarette. Mothership ’88 is a slim-down wonky-ish sut of So-Cal hip hop. There’s something amazing about american ambient that’s never cold and isolating, even when there’s no strong groove. It’s flavoured with the influence of Dilla, Doom and Heat Sensor, but there are also elements that remind me of Ultra Milkmaids, Caribou and Colleen too.
Highlights are Goblin Tree, Goblins in Outta Space and Can’t Fathom. Check it.
While uncovering a series of increasingly exquisite relics, the mouth of an enormous ancient well is discovered, barely visible at first through the dense vegetation. Peering down, the shaft begins to rotate slowly and far below a collection of unidentified stones create a constantly shifting display of coloured patterns on its mirrored walls. The chiming jewels seem to sing as they are turned over and the temptation to descend to the bottom is too great to resist. Once the floor is reached the opening above is sealed shut – and there you remain.
I first came across The Last Sound when he stayed on my couch back in Ireland a few years back. I have to admit that, at first, I didn’t really appreciate his sound. All that changed when Frieze arrived in my inbox. A huge departure from mere electronica, this release is serious music and displays an earnest exploration of texture, arrangement and production. I rate Fades as one of my all time favourites and I’m delighted that this is amongst the first batch of releases on Open Music. Check it out.
