Throughout the approximately thirty eight minutes, eleven track, album (available on bandcamp), the listener is minded of the synthwave of the early ’80s of melancholic perspective with many tracks drawing references by title or structure, though never sounding like a pastiche as the compositions lay in moments of the 21st Century and an LP to be enjoyed at full volume to garner the pleasure of the speakers wandering around the room and hairs waving in the breeze.

My selection is the middle number – 3am Phnom Penh – which pulls in, to me, all the best reference points of the earlier influence which equally cast warning eye on the previous four decades experience, whilst now delivering a refreshing gambit that elucidates precisely how little much has changed in geo-politics in the intervening period.
