The album was recorded over a few days during the World Cup, back when Richard lived in a big shared flat in Stoke Newington. Richard had tried to collaborate with a few other likeminded artists but something clicked when Mike and Rich worked together and the sessions have a unique feel; playful and at times actually drunk. These are fun experiments in the spirit of lighthearted moog pop and ripe 70s British TV themes, standing out from the po-faced electronica of the time with a garish glee.
There's a broadminded but sloppy funk to the record, even whistling, singing and harpsichord in 'Reg' and wonky beat pile-ons in 'Jelly Fish'. More information coming soon. Read More. USD 1.

And in today's climate of vain experimentation, scrupulous precision and perfect sound,? It's hard to believe that a gangly young recluse with no musical training could imagine such bold, poignant textures from the confines of a bedroom. The self-titled opening track wastes no time in showing you where the album stands. A yawning bassline creeps out from the song's recesses, fastened down by punishing drums and jagged metallic clangs. Paradinas tempers the song's stark ambiance with simple, playful melodies, lending an emotive irony to the piece that is uniquely?
This song overwhelms the listener with its stylistic and emotional versatility-- the violent swaths of blistering snares, the melancholy strings, the idiosyncratic bleeps, the plaintive mechanical cries, the funky tribal interludes and the haunting clarity of the central eight-note refrain. The result is as ambiguous and intangible as it is blissful-- a liminal listening experience that not only makes you dance or think or cry, but compels you to do all of that at once.
