2 track 7 inch vinyl complete with locked grooves courtesy of Eglo's chief scientist of sound - Floating Points.
With each release the young Mr Shepherd seems to go deeper and further left as he combines a dancefloor aesthetic with his sonic explorations through sound and colour. Conjuring warm and textured sounds with a ghost like spirit, layered synths rub against pulsating frequencies and dusty hi-hats, marinating in a concoction of sprightly sparks, flashes and rumbling subs that sound like someone just hacked into the laboratory's mainframe. EMF meters come to life with jacking effect as the printer spews out a copious amount of indecipherable sheet music... it's weird science brought to life in the most beautiful of ways.
'Silurian Blue' is such an unforgettable jam that I could have bought the record just for that song. Reminds me of bands like Air, Focus and Deep Purple, but more nuanced and pensive. 'Kelso Dunes' on the other hand, is quite psychedelic and could be considered a very jazzy and intricate version of the jams that Ozric Tentacles used to do. (For those who remember...) Mesmerising, glad to have found this! Koen Veldeman
