Retep Folo

Galactic Sounds

    GALACTIC SOUNDS is the new album by Swedish artist Retep Folo - aka Peter Olof Fransson. Peter has been involved in the Gothenburg underground music scene since the late 1990s, firstly in experimental electronic duo Exhadley, then the more theatrical project Ester Elster, and is currently in 60’s psychedelia inspired ‘The Owl Report’. The former two notching up releases on Swedish underground label Psychic Malmö and British label Reverb Worship. As his Soundcloud account testifies his solo out put is prodigious, much of it unreleased gems, in 2016 he self released the lathe cut 'Music for Cats'.

    It was around the age of six on family trips to his Uncles house in the suburbs of Gothenburg that Peter first started to be intrigued by stars, galaxies and ‘other worlds’. In the evenings he and his cousins would play around with a short wave radio, searching the intervals in between stations for odd noises and voices, then pointing torch lights to the heavens, hoping that that they might receive signals from ‘alien’ life forms.

    GALACTIC SOUNDS steps off from this period of joyful childhood star gazing. Conceived from its inception as "head phone music" - meant to encourage the listener to close their eyes and travel to a far off place. It was recorded with a limited pallet of instruments from his collection; a vintage Farfisa Professional Organ, an old 1966 East German Klira Bass Guitar, a 70's Japanese Glockenspiel and an Elgam Carousel – a rare analogue preset type rhythm box. Inspired in part by 1970s library music and Czech Cartoon sound tracks Peter has created a magical tapestry of space age sound, that glides the listener from track to track, on an intergalactic journey through the starry skies.

    The Green Line

      *Repress!* Black vinyl this time. 

      The Green Line is a new project from Oliver Cherer under the name 'Gilroy Mere'. Trading as Dollboy, Rhododendron, and Australian Testing Labs as well as his own name, Oliver has meandered his way through the backwaters of left of centre English folk, ambient and electronic music, issuing numerous albums of original music to much critical acclaim via highly regarded boutique labels such as Static Caravan, Second Language, Deep Distance, Polytechnic Youth, and Awkward Formats.

      The Green Line is an instrumental album inspired by the buses that once linked central London to country towns. Established by the London General Omnibus Company in the 1930s, with their striking green livery they were a common sight in the outer London suburbs.

      The Green Line is written as a remembrance of childhood trips into the exterior via the green double and single decker buses that took Londoners out to the countryside. It was recorded at his home studio in Sussex using a collection of instruments and obsolete electronics amassed over a lifetime of being unable to resist junk shops, charity shops and car boot sales.

      STAFF COMMENTS

      Barry says: I know, I know, I say this every time, but this might just be the most enchanting Clay Pipe release yet.. brilliantly soft-focus, hazily enchanting and innately calming. You definitely won't want to miss out on this one :swoon:
