Lush V.1

Returned to my previous mainstay of the chilled side of things, this time I got a real hankering for smooth sounds that only a certain few can provide. Here's my choice selections that fit this end.
Tim Doyle - White Dragon

br> Starting off with something I covered a long time ago, Clark's hard to come by Throttle Clarence EP was a real mixed bag of sound varieties. Though saying that it ens on a lovely note which combines the roughness of Clark's usual output with a much more softer melodic edge.

OPN's debut on Warp is pretty special. Only ten tracks long but I can't think of one off the top of my head that I'd get rid of. It's great to hear the advancement in concept from Replica reflected in the sounds themselves. Even with that deliberate lo-fi aspect to the whole album I think it sounds very futuristic, one of the most interesting electronic albums in recent memory that I highly reccomend.

And finally, something a bit more obscure. Taken from one of the well titled Old Tunes tapes, these are probably the best document we have of BoC's output pre-Twoism. Like the few pieces I've posted before their future talent certainly shines through here, the track is very smooth and decidedly more digital techy sounding than the usual expected sound of BoC.
