These are sultry songs for aliens - folk played on synths from another planet.
Cathy Lucas (singer-songwriter / multi-instrumentalist), Valentina Magaletti (drums), Elliott Arndt (flute/percussion), Phil MFU (guitar) and Susumu Makai (bass) are from London and Margate. Syd Kemp engineered and Malcolm Catto mixed seven of the tracks. Sweet, bubbling songs with murmuring synths play together in the reflection of echoing wah wah guitars and flowing vocals. Library music from a parallel universe.
