No more ‘thee’ please, there’s enough already! Other than that minor quibble this is another very strong record in which various artists tackle, re-work and re-make the finest work of a favourite here at the towers, Ela Orleans. Now, my fleeting appearances here allow me to miss out on all kinds of stuff that, naturally, a man with my standing in the music industry should be aware of. I had not previously heard of Ela Orleans, a lady who makes both Mike and Brian’s knees go rather weak when they listen to her psychedelic soundscapes. I am probably therefore the best person to review things having no preconceptions about her past triumphs.
Rather like a glimpse at a ‘Betty’s’ cake tray, this is a smorgasbord of delights from the chocolate eclair of my favourite track, Silver Strain’s woozy dreamy electronica of ‘Axon Terminal Voices’, to the vanilla custard tart of The Drum’s dubscape ‘The Season’. There’s a house/trance workout from Pyramids of Mu (the Battenberg of the collection) whilst the piece de resistance, the if-you-will chocolate cheesecake is provided by Dan Melchior who adds big drums and vocals to create an excellent slightly lollopy tune which would be the highlight of any record.
I’d been looking forward to hearing the music of Mushy and it she doesn’t disappoint with a Black Forest gateau of a ethereal dreamscape. Finally U.S. Girls takes the proverbial Lemon Meringue pie with a churning, dreamy ode with clattering noise and distinctive vocals. Appears on nice vinyl with inner sleeve which tells you about all the artists involved.
