New Year Countdown – 6
And so to the end of the year. November may be cold but here’s Marshall Watson to cheer things up with Thumbtacks, a kalimba based tune that plinks and plonks its way into your soul. I said “Kalimbas are front and centre but the electronics are artfully filled in around. Free download.”
Finally, December. The track here is a remix from the fast-maturing Elliot Adamson of Ricardo Villalobos’ Enfants (Chants). I said “I’m not generally a fan of Villalobos’ minimal thing. But Elliot gives it a bit of extra depth and richness to produce a technoified version that gambols like a new lamb. Sorted.” And we will have more from Elliot in the new year.
