Review: Canal Life is the debut release of London-based Melbourne Duo Goldie Thorn, a bouncy, filtered disco pop venture influenced by the sounds of the Regents Canal. EMU and AKAI hardware sampler libraries are guided by sweet vocals, bargain digital synths and melodic picked bass. This is also the debut release of there very own Dreamtime Records, Dream Analysis Music. A limited run of 200. Enjoy, Canal Life!
Review: Daniel Saxon Judd is plenty prolific as Sorcerer, turning out albums and EPs in abundance on Tirk some ten years ago not to mention more recently landing on Is It Balearic? and Real Balearic, two labels that tell you exactly where his mood is pitched. This five-track EP for Dreamtime keeps the island mindset at the forefront, from the slow and easy "Baked Wave" to the more limber strum-funk of "Drop Shadow". There's some wobbly boogie to enjoy on "Mango Messenger" and MOR grooves of the highest order on "Zoned For Fun" - it's a record swimming in smooth.
