WEEK STARTING 25 May

Genre pick of the week Cover of Ghost In The Shell OST by Kenji Kawai.
Composer Kenji Kawai was chosen to recreate the futuristic cyber-punk atmosphere that emanates from the 'Ghost In The Shell' manga, into music. Assisted by the percussionist Yuhki Sugawara, Kenji Kawai reached the summit of his art by delivering captivating music, halfway between ambient electronics, traditional Japanese music and Buddhist ritual chanting. The synthetic and ethereal soundscapes, almost disturbing, blend perfectly with gongs, bells or female choirs filled with echoes. The listener is plunged into a dreamlike fable sound with a striking and evocative poetry that is reminiscent of the soundtrack of a certain Akira.

Reissued for the first time on vinyl.



Luke Abbott

Music For A Flat Landscape

Following his critically acclaimed second album 'Wysing Forest', Luke Abbott's next long-form release is the award-winning soundtrack to the British film 'The Goob'. Composed and produced by Luke Abbott in full, the LP picks up where his previous record left off. 'Music For A Flat Landscape' is a set of beautiful, meditative electronic music that shows Luke Abbott is a composer and musician at his zenith. The music was awarded 'Best Soundtrack' at the Stockholm Film Festival in late 2014. The album is released on Abbott's new label Buffalo Temple.

Piscean Group originally formed as part of an astrological union founding members and initial line up Sir Robert & Osunlade share. Since the group's conception, Osunlade has created an open coalition of musicians from his childhood home St Louis. As an open forum, the group has no real members and is a voice for all writers, musicians and performers alike. The non-credit of participants gives the group's identity a backseat to the sheer pleasure of the music. This debut long player is intended as a soundtrack to an, as yet, unmade film. With an open landscape and no actual movie to score, the group’s imagination was allowed to go from soft to hard groove, and throw in a few cameo performances from Osunlade and rising LA pianist Daniel Crawford. Cinematic jazz, spiritual broken beat, deep, dreamy downbeat sounds abound. This movement proves to be the start of a long musical journey. Whether a Pisces or not, this will set your mood and elevate your spirit.
