THE SLOWEST LIFT

VHF



LP

Released: 24th Nov 2017

£23.99


this radical (and infuriating to google) English duo play a kind of gentle post-industrial psychedelia, with Sophie Cooper’s lovely vocals floating over a collage of live and electronic performances.

Originally formed via a commission from the Supernormal Festival, Cooper (an accomplished solo performer and collaborator) joins Julian Bradley (from frequent VHF delinquents Vibracathedral Orchestra). The songs are a blend of straightforward performance and eccentric bricolage, with rude electronic interjections sitting comfortably alongside delicate guitar and keyboard melodies. Zoviet France-like lo-fi atmospherics compete with Cooper’s voice for air on some tracks, while the duo’s surprising cover of Duran Duran’s “The Chauffeur” deep on side two sneaks in perfectly, a mini-pop music drama reimagined as pure hallucination. riyl teresa winter, sunburned hand of the man, no neck blues band, and zomes.
