SMK103 – Damselfy – Tasting the Battleground

More ambient electro glory from Albion courtesy of Damselfly, astride and hanging most righteously over the South Downs, sucking up their essence (and Genesis P Orridge’s footprints from 20 Jazz Funk Greats) and blowing them over the channel for us to enjoy. We get snatches of ritual ancient and modern in this release, brooding Get Carterisms and sharp, dry Goth-style route marches through sound dovetailing with gossamer snatches that could have been played at Thomas Hardy’s wedding. Yet more proof that there are many, many more inner visions of England than people are aware of; from the blue murderous (the one rammed down everyone’s throats) to the transformative, as heard here.


This one is a classic! Is it’s good? we don’t know but you probably like it. There is a bit of history there, a bit of art and a bit a wise words. What else do you want from a vlog?
