Yes, it's another limited edition -- deep red this time -- cassette release on Spun Out Of Control; this time for Correlations and their second LP. Night Acquisitions employs dark synth textures to map out nocturnal terrains and starkly moonlit city atmospheres. Here lies Neil Hale's 'Oscar' synth, just awoken, steadily breathing. Featuring special guests Pablo Clements of Toydrum and Simon James of The Simonsound. Akiha Den Den co-mixed and mastered the album from behind a shiny console. Full digital download included.

8/10 Staff review, 01 August 2017

You know how much I like gorgeously moonlit synth textures, don’t you? Well I do. Correlations’ Neil Hales rekindles his love of the vintage OSCar synthesizer -- an online image search reveals an imposingly bulky yet elegantly labelled array of keys, buttons and dials -- to produce the darkly, ravishingly atmospheric and nocturnal music herein; hence Night Acquisitions. I’d have expected nothing less from the cassette-fixated Spun Out Of Control label.

Neil (and Toydrum’s Pablo Clements who co-wrote the title track) saw the music -- apparently inspired by such modern film scores as galactic melodrama ‘Gravity’ and the wilfully perverse ‘A Field In England’ -- evolve out of a handful of neon-lit sessions. Now we have an imaginary sci-fi soundtrack to picture aliens walking the streets of L.A. or Birmingham to. The synths are big and heavy and develop melodic structures lineally.

The machines glitter, spiral and glower menacingly at each other, and I keep expecting Robocop to emerge out of my headphones and make me leap out of my chair, but he never does. Sadly. There’s even pathos in the deep melancholy of ‘Cuba’. Lovely.
