Paulo Tercio - Nothing Is What It Seems IV (2013/4)
Days are catching up on me again, but I'll manage. Feeling pretty Synthy this bank holiday weekend, so here's a cross section of what I've had going on lately. Starting with the floor rattling goodness that is I Surrender from former Games collaborators Joel Ford & Daniel Lopatin. Channel Pressure is their only album so far, and every time I listen to it I itch for more.

Somethin' a little different now, I think it's been long enough that I can pop back into the Ghost In The Shell territory again. I've already sung the praises of Corenlius' production on it, and that's still true here, but it also features Sean Lennon on the vocal side of things too. Wouldn't be my first choice for this kind of thing but I gotta say he pulls it off very well indeed. Gives me the same sorta vibe as the more cyberpunky parts of Electric Light Orchestra's Time.

And finally, one more revisit to potentially one of the oldest tunes on my HDD. Picked this one up sometime in the early 00's and it's been a mainstay ever since, takes a little while to get into the main body but it makes up for it with patience. Spent plenty of youthful late nights to this one, and it's a trend that isn't going to stop anytime soon.
