Monday Long Song

In spite of what your ears may try to tell you, Paisiel is the work of just two men, João Pais Filipe and Julius Gabriel. Their self-titled debut actually emerged last year, on cassette only, via the Portuguese label Lovers & Lollipops, though thankfully the marvellous UK based independent Rocket Recordings has now seen fit to give the album a proper LP release, albeit as a blue vinyl limited edition of just 500. Instead of flailing around for an adequate way to describe this essentially indescribable music, I'll share a simple, but accurate quote from a review: '...a rhythmic plane between Africa, techno, krautrock, and minimalism...'

'Paisiel' will feature among my favourite records of 2019 come December, of that I have no doubt whatsoever.

In '68/'69 they would have sat cross legged on the floor of Chalk Farm's Roundhouse and absorbed this in the same way they would have absorbed the latest platter from the Pink Floyd. I feel a (blue) vinyl purchase coming on.

This one is new to me, Swede and I loved this psychedelic noise. Something I will investigate for more.

That's a bit different, good different. Thanks, Swede.
