MAGIC MIX

PICCADILLY RECORDS

VINYL COMPILATION 2019

Do not adjust your sets / swap your reading specs, we've gone and done another record! After the success of last year's inaugural Piccadilly vinyl, we’ve worked our magic once again (with lots of help from our good friends at ROM) to bring you another compilation LP, jam packed with musical magic from our top 20, as well as the gold medallists in the reissue and compilation categories.

Buckle up as we blast off into the sonic stratosphere with the 'Piccadilly Records Compilation 2019'.

W.H. Lung get things off to a flying start with the existential motorik and art pop perfection of "Second Death Of My Face", a soaring combination of searing synthwork, sophisticated lyrics and propulsive rhythm which segues perfectly into the psychedelic throb and shoegaze shimmer of Lorelle Meets The Obsolete's "Lineas En Hojas". The tempo settles into a riverbank lilt for the haze of Vanishing Twin's summertime serenade "Magician's Success", before coasting through the orchestral beauty of Prefab Sprout's "Sleeping Rough" and Shana Cleveland's nuanced acid folk. Closing out the A-side perennial Piccadilly favourites Moon Duo take an arp out of Apta's book and walk us through the cosmos with the optimistic space disco of "Stars Are The Light".

The spaced out synth tones remain for B-side opener "101FM", a stomping coming of age cut from fierce MC Little Simz, who hands the baton to a lovelorn Cate Le Bon for her swooning "Daylight Matters", a songwriting masterclass if ever I've heard one. Our own modular maestro Apta enters the fray next, working the filters for a beatific Balearic rework of Horsebeach's "Trust", before fellow knob-twiddler Andrew Wasylyk picks a path between Air (French band) and Air (Japanese Ambient imprint) with the evocative and pastoral beauty of "Journey To Inchcape". Continuing the theme of cinematic and serene, Portico Quartet tug at each one of our heartstrings with the immersive electro-acoustic nocturne "Gradient", a perfect precursor to Ghia's end of night anthem "You Won’t Sleep On My Pillow", a stand out track from the exceptional 'Proper Sunburn' compilation.
