Inspired by the Brunei dollar, Lionel 'Vinyl' Williams has created an Islam influenced pop opus to help try to spread harmony across the world. He is joined by Company boss Chaz Bundick (aka Toro Y Moi) and together they have made a dream pop opus which hopes to expand on Williams previous hit and miss effort 'Into'. You can't argue though with a guy whose grandfather is John Williams and father was in Air Supply.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 24 August 2016

Vinyl Williams previous album ‘Into’ was a bit unfairly maligned in some places for not being the  most consistent album of all time, yet amongst the sprawl were various examples of how dream pop can still thrill in a world where we chase fake things around the street with a phone.

The follow up ‘Brunei’ has the sort of convoluted concept that makes you want to give up before the needle strikes the vinyl but once on board you are in a similar sound world to ‘Into’ where heat haze melodies rub up against what we used to call chillwave on song structures that wander like a lost drunk clawing out for the night bus. It’s alarmingly pleasant on the ear if sometimes near impossible to actually find any hooks and so it comes as no surprise that Toro Y Moi leader Chaz Bundick has helped play hide the tune as well as releasing it on his own Company Records without screaming ‘I CAN’T HEAR A HIT!’ at Williams. But that’s the nature of this dreamy sound, it’s indistinct and swirling and enjoyable unless you listen too hard. On 'Voidless’ there are some sweet harmonies that sit in the exact space occupied by C Duncan but with the deep funk of Toro Y Moi welded on.

The album is a heap of sun drenched harmonic pop and will appeal to those (me) who thought that Washed Out never improved on that first EP.
