Quiet Space — #163 — Cumulus Sketches

An excellent new release to start 2021. Wil Bolton returns with ‘Cumulus Sketches’ , an album of fragile, drifting ambient structures for daydreaming and cloud-watching. Pastoral analogue synthesizer melodies and effects pedal textures are intertwined with rural and urban environmental sounds recorded in South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong and Sri Lanka. As well, the excellent Hibernate label with a series of releases available online for a charitable cause.

1/2/3/4 — #183 — Nanana

On this episode featuring the debut from a Swedish artist who has been busy behind the scenes lending her talents, she finally steps out and up with a stunning single. Don’t let the title NaNaNa fool you, this is majestic sweeping pop that starts simply but soars as it reaches its conclusion.

1/2/3/4 — #182 — Surfgazing with Double Happiness

All killer no filler – well that’s true of ALL 1/2/3/4 episodes in my opinion! Featuring the excellent debut from Brisbane’s Double Happiness. ‘Surfgazing’ is a reverb-drenched ode to afternoons spent sun-kissed and wave-side, to letting the wind take your hand as it dangles out the car window along the highway and to ’60s beach parties and the dance crazes that accompanied them. Highly Recommended. Also magic tracks from Dominic Breen, Heavenly, Merce Lemon, Froggy Prinze, Lack the Low and more!
