Mexican Summer MEX-082
Brand new album from Sam Goldberg’s always-fantastic Radio People project with one of their most gloriously technicolour productions. Hazel features a guest appearance from John Elliott of Emeralds/Outer Space et al and the feel is of America Endless w/a synth music that relocates European notions of continent and space to the American landmass, a music of eternal expansion, of constant evolution. Tracks build from simple drum machine hypnotics into great vistas of overlapping synthesized heavens as melodies cohere in flat-lined pulse-based beams of pure electricity. God knows there’s a lot of mediocre synth-action out there but once more Goldberg (and Elliott!) prove themselves to be way ahead of the game. Hand-numbered edition of 750 copies on virgin vinyl with a download code.
