Utopia lays claim to having one of the best and innovative TV scores of recent times, as evidenced in its critical acclaim from writers far and wide. So, this September it will be getting a vinyl release for the first time. Recorded entirely in Borough train station, it features sounds and field recordings from the eclectic to the eccentric, this is a must-have for any Utopia fanatic. What’s more- it comes in yellow coloured vinyl, naturally.
9/10 John Lewis Customer review, 13th September 2015
I'd never seen the TV series but something about this record intrigued me so I checked it out on Spotify first. The use of percussion and the range of instruments reminded me of early '70s experimental Kraut Rock. Adding the snips of soundtrack and your sent not only into the old world of Can and early '70 electronic rock pioneers but also post punk electronic icons - Cabaret Voltaire ( Red Mecca) , TG, Nurse With Wound. If you know these bands you know this will be a kind of spooky place.
But the merge of these sounds still gives birth to an undoubtedly modern album which fits in wiith but surpasses the contemporary completion. It's great to hear such inventive music still being made, each track has it's own texture and the moods, sometimes mystical, sometimes scary, sometimes hypnotic and always mesmerising spiral you into your own little utopian cocoon.
