Echo Nebula

When I posted the Rival Consoles remix of The Neil Cowley Trio’s Weightless last week a reader called Adverse Camper advised me that the remix of Echo Nebula by Vessels on the same ep (Spacebound Tapes) was really good too. And Adverse Camper is absolutely spot on, it is. It buzzes and fizzes, building in bursts, little melodies shining through, before the classical piano emerges at the end. The 12″ is long since sold out but this track will cost you just £1 at Bandcamp or you could splash out on the whole 4 track ep for a whopping £3 if you’re feeling flush.

Weightless

In his most recent Music’s Not For Everyone radio show Weatherall played this track, released back in February. Neil Cowley made an album called Spacebound Apes, a sci fi exploration based loosely around Arthur C Clarke’s 1956 novel The City And The Stars. This remix by Rival Consoles is a joy, a beautiful, lighter than air piece of music that sounds like music made by human machines.
