About this item
As the series draws to a close, no Warp anthology would be complete without Seefeel, Mark Clifford, Daren Seymour, Justin Fletcher, and Sarah Peacock's iconic, post-rock-electronica group who would make a mark on the early days of Warp records. Bridging guitar-based dream pop and shoegaze stylings with the downbeat, ambient techno and electronica they'd form a unique and characterful landmark on the mid 90s horizon, signing to Warp after early murmurings on independent label Too Pure.
This final volume of this epic Warp series digs the bands Peel session from 1994 and is comprised of "Rough For Radio", "Starethrough", "Vex" and "Phazemaze". Side A drifts through their fuzzy shoegaze electronica and into their slightly claustrophobic blankets of beats, instruments and texture wrought with blackened circuits. Side B opens with the mournful techno of "Vex" before the gloopy static swamp of "Phazemaze" completes the selection with an experimental piece worthy of John Peel's cult sessions....
What a way to end the series! Pheewwwee. Gotta get 'em all!!
Matt says: Like label mates Plaid, Seefeel's world is that of mystery, exploration blurred boundaries. Existing in liminal and hallucinatory plains yet guided by a humane and sympathetic outlook. This final edition of Warp Session finds the band in exquistive form.
