Q&A’s with Earthboogie | Silken Moon EP | Leng Records | Release 16|03|18

eclectics music

Having spent the last ten months recording their adventures, Izaak Gray and Nicola Robinson return with “Silken Moon”, the first single from their forthcoming debut album, Human Call.
In typical fashion, “Silken Moon” cannily combines musical elements from a myriad of styles – most notably Afro-disco, samba and mid-tempo Chicago house – to create a humid hybrid that defies easy categorization.
There are bouncy organ riffs, undulating acid lines, clipped Afro-funk guitars, tons of tropical percussion and the chanted, carnival-friendly vocalizations of guest singer Nina Miranda.
Click play and have a listen to the ep  as you read read through the Q&A’s you can pre order the Silken Moon Ep here which is to be released on Leng Records on the 16th of March…

Joe Morris | Jacaranda Skies | Pleasure Unit… Release 2nd Feb.

eclectics music

ANDREW WEATHERALL

“The Jacaranda Skies EP is the sort of record that is not for every moment. But when the crowds right …and I think fuck it I wanna go a different way, this is what I’d put on. Hopefully I’d take the crowd with me…”

Following solid EP’s on Is it Balearic, Secret Life and Balearic Social Joe Morris offers up four gorgeous cuts for Pleasure Unit. Continuing the producers passion for new age, paradisiacal ambience and dreamy deep house lead title “Jacaranda Skies” could easily be the result of a Telephones and Larry Heard jam session had they met in Rimini circa 1991. A dusky atmosphere provides the backdrop to ecstasy inducing chords; an elevated brass sequence and afro percussion drive forth a tight groove.

‘The Lost Garden’ opens to a reverb soaked slide guitar and soaring pad section before a Jaguar snarl introduces a subtle kick pattern…

Fernando Pulichino is no stranger to Leng Records. The bass guitar-wielding Argentine made his first appearance on the label five years ago via the cosmic disco/psychedelic rock fusion of Blue Impala, returning two years later with the similarly inclined brilliance of Giant Desert. Pulichino then resurfaced on Leng late last year with a superb, digital-only three-tracker called Natural 77.Now he’s back on wax, buoyed by the success of the acclaimed Shining EP on Is It Balearic? Recordings. This time round he’s in Search of Indigo, shaping hazy, sun-baked soundscapes…

Stonehenge – more than a ring of stones.

V in depth historic analysis of Stonehenge..
Interesting to think on how many Millennia prior to their construction Solstice, Summer & Winter; were important to us -Mesolithic & beyond perhaps..
“To really understand Stonehenge the curious need to look at the wider landscape and then look further again. Afterall, not too far away is the equally astounding landscape surrounding Avebury. What was the relationship between these two sacred landscapes? “

T M Rowe - Writer

Stonehenge – a name that evokes a great many emotions in a great many people.  For some it is a place of pilgrimage, a place to connect with the ancestors and for others it is seen as a tourist trap or something to tick off the bucket list.  For centuries it has captured our imagination; never has a heritage site been so controversial – something which continues to this day.  In this post it is not my intention to give a full on thesis about Stonehenge, there are plenty of books/websites who do this already.  Instead it is simply an overview of what is currently understood about the site, its surrounding landscape and my own personal thoughts.

Stonehenge is situated on the Salisbury Plains, to the south is the busy A303, a main road between the south-west and London, and for many years the equally busy A344 ran alongside the site. …

BREAKING NEWS: Geophysical survey reveals secret chambers and corridors underneath Stonehenge.

Fascinating..

Stonehenge Stone Circle News and Information

Most people are unaware of the underground chamber that lies beneath Stonehenge.

geophys wide.png

The six entrances to it are clearly visible in the recent geophysical survey, arranged as a squashed hexagon with linking corridors between them, leading to the antechamber located below the North Barrow and the main room directly below the stone circle.

Col. William Hawley’s excavations of 1926 revealed the existence of the entrances and corridors, but he didn’t investigate further as he was already in his mid-70s and had been abandoned by the workers assigned to assist him.

The records of this discovery existed only in Hawley’s personal notebooks, which lay unexamined until the mid 1950s.

In 1958, under the pretext of re-erecting a collapsed Trilithon, Richard Atkinson’s team made extensive excavations in the centre of the circle in an attempt to break through to the main room after the route via the antechamber was discovered to…
