I remember this 12″ cover art looking right at me when i walked into Etherea Record Shop in East Village, it was pretty much everything i wanted in a font and texture a few years back. This track reminds me of Erlend Oye right away, it feels like something he would sing over but his voice never drops in. If you get a chance check out this record label Eskimo Recordings, they have great art direction and some of the best slow motion disco out there.

that sounds great, checking out the album now. Not much content on the Eskimo Recording site… needlessly done in Flash too.
The cover is fantastic. very creative

The full length was great too, I thought anyways. Etherea is such a great shop. I always find such gems in that place. A few years back I picked up the Tangled Wool album by Xela. I didn’t know anything about them, but loved the cover art and figured it must be decent. It was much more than decent! Seems like something that would fit with the musical tastes of those who read your fine blog and buy your music. http://www.discogs.com/viewimages?release=238366 Does anyone know anything about them? I haven’t found any of their other records.

This album got mixed reviews on iTunes, some say its too simplistic… What do you think of the whole album Scott. Ive been burned by simplistic electronic music that ended up sounding like the Demo on an ’80 casio keyboard in the past.

Nevermind my last comment about not finding the other Xela records, i just noticed a few on iTunes….

those two guys make the finest space disco you can ever imagine.
i saw them live in zurich.
prins thomas mixing records and lindstrøm improvising ultra spaced out solos over them. if they come to your town: check ’em out.

You know I just thought of something.
Tycho needs to be sold on Bleep.com. It’s one of my favorite music sources and it would be an awesome home right along side everything they sell.
(excited! I just bought the new Apparat remix cd “Things To Be Frickled.” It has a remix by Lusine!)
Tycho, you need to be on Bleep. They’ve got tons of loyal customers who’ll drop plenty-a-dime on you!
