Tropical Hi-Fi

Oceania

Following an appearance on the Schleissen series, Tropical Hi-Fi makes a return to Emotional Response with some delightful exotica laced musings perfect for static real world situations, not to mention mind trips to distant shores. Just try listening to the steel guitar lilt and percussive tumble of "Tahiti Blue" and not having the image of a balmy, breezy island scene in your third eye. At times the record drifts off into experimental, field recording focused territory, and occasionally the machines take over for a more electronic experience, but throughout the playful inspiration of exotica binds this wonderfully realised record together.
