Eyes of Love - Edge of Daybreak


The tale of the one take wonder is the stuff of legend in the music world. Serge Gainsbourg's piece de resistance, L'histoire de Melody Nelson, was supposedly written in one night.  I'm sure you can all remember vividly, a moment of live music where rather inexplicably a host of intangible forces collided, resulting in a fleeting moment of euphoria on both the part of the artist and the listener.  Such moments have an air of divine inspiration to them, and this album is certainly a fine example.
Recorded in only 5 hours by inmates of the Powhatan Correctional Center, Virginia; this is a document that lays bare some of the rawest soul put on record. Written and played by a group of individuals deemed unfit by the state and society, there is a strong contradiction at heart here, which upon each listen reveals deeper layers and forces the listener to consider some of our most basic concepts and truths. If nothing else, it is a testament to the human condition in the face of grim circumstances, serving as a reminder that some of the greatest, life-affirming art often comes from the darkest of places.

Soundsweekly Radio Ep.17 - Sky


It's that time again folks! Our 17th show, the first of 2017 is of the classic Soundsweekly variety, a true journey through sound. It's also two for the price of one this time round, as this is the first time we've brought in a second pair of hands behind the decks, its our favourite Russian groove monster, Alex, who has kindly helped curate this aural excursion. As the last few have been more oontscey, we've gone for higher contrast in tempo and aesthetic this time round and we're sure you'll love it just as much. Definitely one for your daily commute to and from work, some chilled beverages of your choice in the local park or just relaxing to at home in your favourite state of undress.
