Erik Blood - Lost in Slow Motion (2016)

Hazy, synth-saturated dream pop from another slept-on Seattle artist. He apparently works with Shabazz Palaces and THEESatisfaction -- pretty sure that's Shabazz on the intro cut -- but Blood's sound hews much closer to the laid-back psychedelia of Tame Impala and Beach House's elegant, shimmering melancholy.

Track listing:
1. (when they are loving)
2. The Attic System
3. Chase the Clouds
4. Bloused Up
5. Covered in a Color
6. Quiet
7. Remove Control
8. Hold for Laughs
9. Ostrich
10. Out This Way

I hear you calling

  1. D_S Thanks for this!

    *Do you have anything by Raadie (Lorenz Raab and Christof Dienz)? They play experimental ambient which includes trumpet, electronics and the "e-zither". Very good stuff, sometimes reminds me of Jon Hassell.
