Glimpses Across Thunder

One of my favourite songs of last year was Paradise by Glasgow’s AMOR, a song that still sounds as good today as it did in February 2017, a hypnotic, joyful, arms aloft piece of avant disco that swoons and soars.

ou can buy it at Bandcamp digitally (the vinyl is long since sold out).

AMOR are four musicians with different musical histories who’ve come together to make dance music for the feet and heart. Their bio on Bandcamp cites Ron Hardy, The Blue Nile, Philadelphia International and David Mancuso as reference points. There’s an album out next month with this as a opening offer and I think we have a late contender for those lists people will soon be making…


Something even longer than yesterday’s eleven minutes plus extravaganza from The Early Years is this from Glasgow’s AMOR (and played by Weatherall on his Music’s Not For Everyone show last week). Paradise is a hypnotic and joyful musical exploration, this side of disco and that side of experimental. It came out at the end of February this year, has an irresistible groove and is beautiful in every way.
