Here's a folk from Leeds who knows and love a few different genres and likes to make his own version of a couple of them under the same cover of darkness. This lo-fi bundle of joy, also known as 'Dream Boys', collates dream pop chords with droning samples and noisy, clipping distortion. It sounds thoroughly organic in every one of its incarnations.
7/10 Clinton Staff review, 14 November 2014
I’ve just heard these words echo around the office... ‘I’m a massive fan of Idlewild’. Is it possible to sack someone for dreadful music taste? Aaaanyway welcome to Clint’s tape corner where we try to find something for you to listen stuff that isn’t mainstream shit. First up Safer Tropics who are from Leeds and have produced something really unusual on this four track tape. They kind of build up strange atmospheres using what sounds like organic materials, found sounds, drums, treated guitars. It all builds up to an intoxicating sonic stew. I don’t know what to compare them to perhaps a Fuck Buttons who had been forced to work in damp leaking cellar. Gruesome sonic explorations.
