The Time and Space Machine – Good Morning
Richard Norris’ The Time & Space Machine is back with some psychedelic Balearica out on 6 August. All chanted multi-track vocals, sitars and tambourines. Tie-dyes at sunrise. Last embers of the fire on the beach. Dog on a string left in London.
There’s remixes from Leftside Wobble, Saint Etienne and Coyote. Leftside Wobble brings some of his sub-bass to make it sound less 60s. Saint Etienne give it a dance floor rhythm for leftfield sets. Easily the best of the mixes. Coyote’s mix is all tambourines and bongos. Probably does sound great on the beach. But not in grey London.
The Time & Space Machine – Good morning (Original)
Blurb: The Time & Space Machine aka Richard Norris is straight out the gates with a second single off his acclaimed ‘Taste The Lazer’ album. The summery gem, titled ‘Good Morning,’ comes packed with three stunning accompaniments from Leftside Wobble, Saint Etienne and Coyote. The original is a super-chilled wake up call to all things psyche and beautiful. Shimmering guitar tones, breathing string phrases and a slo-mo beat fully encapsulate the sense and meaning of the lyrics. Time to face the day indeed! On the flip we’re served up some cracking remixes. Leftside Wobble’s offering doesn’t disappoint with its strong rhythm section and unique take on the original theme. Saint Etienne’s mix goes a little more mysterious, with looping, convoluted elements coming together momentarily for dance floor ecstasy before bumping back down to the steady momentum. Finally, Coyote brings a new edge to the T&SM package with their laidback adaptation, putting emphasis on the haunting chants and vocal harmonies.
