Tim Sweeney's burgeoning Beats In Space welcomes a new if familiar (not to mention beardy) face into the fold in the shape of Tornado Wallace. The Desperate Pleasures 12" marks another release in a resurgent year for Australian producer Tornado Wallace, following turnouts for ESP Institute and Kinfolk (the latter as part Coober Pedy University Band) Musically, Wallace himself describes the three tracks as "designed for late night wanderings through Botswanan jungles" and there's a discernible degree more thickness to his productions here. "Okavango Delta" adds notable Afro beat elements and field recordings into its sprung synth textures, while the balmy downtempo guitar and Italo elements of both the title track and "Space Tropics" call to mind Fabio Frizzi's Zombie Flesh Eaters soundtrack. Amazingly colourful artwork and vinyl too!
