The Dear One

Back in 2013 I wrote about Towers, the second album from one man band Baltic Fleet. The one man is Paul Fleming, former touring keyboardist for Echo And The Bunnymen, who has returned with another album- The Dear One. This is the title track and single, an instrumental with more than a nod to your cosmische West German groups and a synth riff that’ll stick in your cranium for days. The album takes in similar sounds, passing through Eno and Bowie’s Berlin days. It’s affecting and exhilarating stuff- and fully fits in with this week’s mission to defy fascists with music. Avanti!
