Review: Usually found on Om's offshoot, Smoke N Mirrors, this latest release by San Francisco's Shiny Objects sees a promotion to the parent label. "The Velvet Side" also betrays a musical shift to a darker sound, which totally pays off. Highlights of this classy seven track long player include the gothy glam-rock-body-music of the title track, the proggy eight-minute spaced-out lunar jam "The Universe Unfolding" and the deep, agitated-house of "Nervous".
Review: Despite his young age, Squire has already released records on big labels such as Get Physical, Rebellion, My Favorite Robot and Parquet Recordings. "Truthful Groove" is a stunning showcase of deep electronic soul. He masterfully weaves psychedelic rhythms with ethereal soundscapes unlike any we've heard before. The entire EP is a deep journey of dance floor rockers. Both heady and groovy, these cuts are sure to bring energy and character to dance floors across the world. are sure to bring energy and character to dancefloors across the world.
