New Sounds…

Standard

Gotta share a couple – very different, but both fabulous – tunes that arrived in my inbox today…

First up, a new collaboration between System 7/Gong musicians Steve Hillage and Miquette Giraudy and Japanese psych/jam band Rovo. Hinotori is from their Phoenix Rising album, released today. If you’re a fan of either or those projects, or instrumental psych/prog like Ozrics and The Future Kings of England then this might well be your cup of tea…

And for a complete change of tone, this ongoing collaboration between Terry Bickers (House of Love/Levitation) and Pete Fij (ex-Adorable) is producing some wonderful work: infused with that peculiarly-British penchant for underplaying heartbreak: like a scruffy bum on a park bench humming a cheerful tune to himself, clutching a half-empty can of Special Brew. This is Downsizing

Watch the clip, too: some chucklesome moments including a badly-spelled homage to Manic Street Preachers.

And in case you missed it, here’s previous, also excellent ‘single’ Betty Ford:
