Blue States releases his long awaited fifth album 'Restless Spheres' via Memphis Industries. It's been nine years since we last heard from Blue States, the moniker for the musical outlet of Andrew Dragazis. Recorded, produced and, for the most part, played by Dragazis at his Lightwell studios in Stoke Newington, London, 'Restless Spheres' doffs its cap to the soundtracks of Budd and Morricone, to 60s Greek bands such as the Forminx, to German electronic pioneers Dieter Moebius and Michael Rother and to American minimalist composers Steve Reich and Phillip Glass. On 'Restless Spheres' Dragazis draws on all four of his previous albums to create something entirely different, an album imbued with a subtle majesty and hope filled melancholy. 'Restless Spheres' themes, for the most part, focus on the everyday, the finding of beauty in the mundane.
