31 Aug SMK077 – Chlorine – Oban
A single reedlike pulse indulges in a hesitant sniffing of the air before taking shape as a beautiful murmuring that envelops the listener’s Psyche; like a mist rolling in from the Grey Havens. This is how we describe the track called 24 Hour Love Thing; a shimmering beauty that takes AWVFFTS’s Muse and frolickes with her most wantonly on a kebab-stained mattress. Puddle Dress is a looped soundscape that sounds like a Yak breathing over Asmus Tietchens’ shoulder. And Oban sounds like the soundtrack to a Graham Sutherland painting. Yet more wantaway romance from Sunderland’s Chlorine, shaking a magic stick at that town’s spray-tan sloth. Dig, Ye musclebound bankers!
