i hold a wish for you by Aspidistrafly

The main thing I've learnt from reading through the sales notes for this re-pressed CD from pastoral soundscapers Apsidistrafly is that the music was based around a novel by Banana Yoshimoto. Just stop a minute... Banana? Anyway these ambient pieces take influences from her Moonlight Shadow novella (and yes before I joke about it, it was inspired by Mike Oldfield's song of the same name) and creates gorgeous acoustics and electronic textures warmed up by soothing vocal harmonies. 

CD £17.99 KI-002R

I'm being treated to some real sonic lovelies today. Got this CD by Aspidistrafly called 'I Hold A Wish For You' and it's a remarkable sounding/looking package. Housed in a concertina booklet full of tasty photography, this is a boy/girl project (from Singapore I believe) - full of dreamy post shoegaze soundscapes, ethereal female vocals & lullaby folk textures. It kind of reminds me of the pastures between Cocteau Twins, Lamb & Sigur Ros, the voice fluttering & hovering around tantalisingly between absorbing passages of crisp acoustics, subtle found sound samples, gentle ambient/drift textures and blissed laptop glitch. It's definitely of a high pedigree, lovingly produced and a delight to look at as well hear. If you're in need of a stress relieving boost, then add this soothing baby to yr cart!
