“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…

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? “
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.

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…
