Review: Following his debut Strange Folk EP in 2018, James Alexander Bright backs it up with a debut long player to boot in Headroom In The Dark! Touching on spacey electronic jazz, the crackle and fizz and pop of LA's Beat scene (or Berlin's dub techno mainframe) next to fractions of sub-pop folk elements, broken beat drums and experimental, psychedelic tendencies, Bright's Headroom In The Dark sparks with fire. Add breathy vocals, lo-fi frequencies, and interrupted patchbay signals to the fresh musicianship of a new and upcoming artist and you're met with newfound pop sounds for 2020 and beyond. Enjoy.

Review: Putting Bright in James Alexander, the UK artist brings more of his acoustic, electro pop to K7 with the awaited Headroom LP. It follows his Strange Folk EP from last year and introduces to the masses a kaleidoscopic sound of 70s futurist synths, italo basslines and indie rhythms topped with folk-tipped drums, jazz, and more summer breeze than what we're all getting right now. Headroom brings a concoction of future feel good classics to be enjoyed in the outdoors, like sultry exterior numbers "Gold" all the way through to the finger picking, flute and ambient reverb of "Dancing With Birds". Heavier disco ballads in "Lead Me Astray", all time sax in "6am" to the chill vibes of "Go" and bassline country funk of "Friends (Lovers Lost)". Premium pop.

Tigers Roar - (3:35) 115 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
The Panther - (3:56) 121 BPM
Review: We've been saying for years that what the dance scene needs is more nouveau funk tracks named after large felids, and now young UK singer-songwriter James Alexander Bright duly obliges with 'Tigers Roar' and 'The Panther'. The title track comes on like the result of an unholy three-way between Amp Fiddler, chart-friendly pop-funk as pedalled by the likes of Bruno Mars and 70s yacht rock, while 'The Panther' takes a more experimental approach, and sounds like something that might have emerged from the axis around the likes of Flying Lotus and Thundercat.

Strange Folk - (3:37) 77 BPM
Review: Seemingly coming from nowhere UK singer/songwriter/beatsmith Bright made a strong impression with his debut "Mallorca" earlier this year and now he returns with five more addictive hazy gems. "Which Way" is a slinky bluesy strutter with great detail on the beats and humanised percussive elements. Many other highlights follow; the cosmic swoons of "Tango", the whirlwind cymbals and faraway loops of "Slowly Crawl" and the spacebound blues and slo-mo introspection of the title track "Strange Folk" are but three...

Review: Many happy returns to Los Angeles imprint Friends of Friends, which with this expansive compilation notches up a decade of championing "one of a kind artists working to find new ways of connecting the digital and analog worlds". The weighty, 20-track collection naturally offers a great snapshot of the label's distinctive musical headspace, languidly strolling between woozy, semi-acoustic trip-hop beats (Somi & Haris Cole), evocative cinematic soundscapes (Cuddle Formation), drowsy redlined ambience (Deru), jazzy warmth (Sweatson Klank), loose-limbed bluesy dub disco (James Alexander Bright), atmospheric, post-house dancefloor shufflers (Keep Shelly In Athens) and buzzing, percussion-driven mutations of leftfield bass music (Slete Catorce).
