Here’s the latest selection from the Space Library – carefully curated and a little bit spacey. The wondrous Kahimi Karie gets us started with a lovely electronic puzzle called ‘Blue Orb’, a short diversion into the world of Stereolab then leads us into Patrick Cowley’s porn soundtrack music (believe the hype, it’s excellent). I’ll skim through the rest but Family Fodder again prove that they were the band that should have received far more accolades – and the same goes for the Gentle People whose ‘Superstar’ mixes a deep space ambiance with E.L.O. vocoder processed vocals. Let’s do this.
