Extralife Title track kills it but Nectar Mag sounds like a cross between a psychedelic version of the most beautiful Rest Proof Clockwork outtake mixed with.....Gescom - Mag.

Too lush.

Amber Petrol'r is the first of two singles for/from the full-length affair Shallow Earth, issued at Recycled Plastics on May 17th. Opening with detuned breaths of polysynth pad, the mood quickly establishes itself with a ballooned FM bassline over a DR-660 digital drum machine. Slices of pop radio vocal flit around the stereo field, coagulating into a funky fuzz (or is that a fuzzy funk?). From there, Milieu turns on the cruise control, while the glistening melodies seep out of the speakers and stain the floorboards of the car. This all feels so very familiar, doesn't it? Have we all been here before? A moment's hesitation..."Wait a minute, wait a minute..." before a slow realization dawns: "We've met before, haven't we? It was at your house, don't you remember?" At this instant, we're no longer riding in a car, but falling upward into a fireworks show, surrounded by smoke and neon and electric heat. We're vaporized into a billion fluorescent particles of light, scattered across the horizon line like a radioactive rainfall, surfing on purple clouds in a sleepy night sky.

Supporting Amber on her debut single are two non-album b-side tracks from the Shallow Earth sessions, Nectar Mag and Alpine Valet. If you'd like to hear the full album, check it out at Recycled Plastics:
