About this item

Star Creature return with a tasty 12" from June Chikuma. It's a welcome divergence from the granted, high quality stream of bedroom boogie and modern funk usually dished out by the label; seeing as it treads a kind of esoteric-balearica / vapourwave-jazz swagger. A new-age soundtrack to a Martian poolside sit-com; its quirky vintage instrumentation (featuring keyboards and synths you presumed well discontinued) seeking to impose a fragrant and relaxed, albeit slightly surreal warmth onto the listener. Perfect for sun lounging in a sweltery midday sun; this is music to lap away the worries, cares and anxieties of the current reality. A suspended dream state free of any tension and drama whatsoever and one where the mind can wander through technicoloured beams of sonic indulgence.

Highly recommended!
