Balaphonic – Balinese Saints – Well Cut Records

Sometimes when you’re lost in a haze of smouldering electronics it’s good to get recharged by the flair of relatively real music, which of course tempts you in the direction of this label. Have to say second listen and I’m hooked into the opening salvo of Balinese Saints which fires off irredeemably energetic percussion breaks together with a jazzy, latin-esque sense of rhythm and language. Mondays, follows fuelled by jaunty shuffles, reversed sequences plus the joy of guitar all rolled into one. While the excellent Sunflowers In Dub then exits via a final, reassuring blast of resounding Balearic echo plus stereo enhanced, life-affirming goodness.

Release: September 22
