It’s Muir’s first proper album under his own name, and eschews synthesis in favour of sample manipulation. His source material? Classic ’60s surf-rock, that’s channeled into hazy ambient zones bringing to mind Andrew Pekler, Philip Jeck, Gas or Pinkcourtesyphone.
The record is another essential release from sferic, the label responsible for releasing Space Afrika’s acclaimed Somewhere Decent To Live earlier this year.
