Food Pyramid have been at it again! Actually this album came in a couple of weeks ago on CD but arrived too late in the week to get a review, but the vinyl’s in this week and boss man Phil is off so I’m throwing caution to the wind and writing about it regardless. It’s a fun record, but a difficult one to pin down, with the quartet spanning post-dubby ambience through to pumping cosmic house over the course of this album’s eight tracks.
It starts out on a very laid back tip, with the analogue tones floating around gently and sparsely alongside gentle kraut beats and minimal techno pulses for the first two or three tracks in a way that recalls High Wolf or Cloudland Canyon. Then on ‘The High Life’ the beats kick up a notch and we’re taken to some kind of early house-influenced plane with blissed out synths and head nodding beats galore, particularly effective on album highlight ‘GMBH’ where Dark Dark Dark’s Nona Invie joins them for some silky vocals which lend the sound a bit of a Sapphire Slows-esque feel. Closer ‘Marsh Bar’ is very cool too, gently dropping us back on dry land with its dubby bass, tropical Sun Araw drift and dub-echoed mumblings reminding me a little of Dirty Beaches. Very cool record.
