RSD 2019. Beacon Sound reissue the 1993 dream-pop classic Euphoria by UK duo Insides for Record Store Day 2019. Licensed from 4AD and featuring the original artwork, this limited edition vinyl release of 2000 copies is foil-numbered and includes an additional insert containing contemporary liner notes by British music journalist Simon Reynolds, who coined the term "post-rock" while writing about the group in the early 90's and declared Euphoria one of the albums of the year for Melody Maker in '93.
Euphoria sits at the crossroads of a very exciting time in the early 1990s when artists like Seefeel, Moonshake, and Aphex Twin were mining emerging technologies and pushing British music in new directions. A leftfield electronic pop album without peer, Euphoria incorporates programmed beats, elements of neoclassical minimalism, and the soothing voice and acerbic lyrics of singer Kirsty Yates into a memorable and masterful collection of songs that sound like nothing else, either then or now. Reviews at the time reference composers like Steve Reich and Brian Eno as well as groups like My Bloody Valentine and AR Kane and describe it as being both "danceable" and "ambient". Originally released on 4AD offshoot label Guernica (Unrest, Bettie Serveert, Spoonfed Hybrid), it made many year-end lists in 1993 and demands contemporary rediscovery and reappraisal given the era of genre-splicing experimentation that we are currently in.
