We Are Launching: Boring Days


Paper Wave
PAPWDS245 | 2018-06-07  
Paper Recordings' kicks off its new downtempo imprint Paper Wave, which is all set to explore the left of centre and Balearic. Ben Davis' (Flash Atkins) side-project project 'Stubb' is first up with a release that's already been causing beardy types to get hot under their plaid shirted collars with it's limited vinyl release.

We Are Launching is a journey into psychedelic Balearica with one of the most exciting artists of recent years, Jane Weaver. Her Mercury Music Prize long-listed album Modern Kosmology was described by The Guardian as 'a lean and thrillingly addictive slice of unearthly pop'. The Stubb collaboration is a sublime head trip to the deep reaches of space and electronica with hallucinatory guitars, burbling synths and arpeggiators that are beautifully set off by Jane's ethereal vocals.

Mike Lindsay is founder and producer of folktronica pioneers Tunng and his distinctive vocals sing the praises of doing nothing on Boring Days, which is leftfield pop at it's finest. The track is locked down by a nagging fifth bass with vocal pops, hand claps, muted afro guitar, washed synths and arps that build before the choruses hit in a wave of analogue keyboards and fuzz guitar. After that, a gloriously stretched outro takes you straight to the Mediterranean. There's also an edited instrumental that brings out the sunshine.
