ANIMAL MAGIC

tru thoughts



CD

£9.99


now a certified classic of the genre- 2001's 'animal magic' slowly takes shape as a solid debut of narcoleptic down tempo.

if, in simon green's fusion of encouraging trip-hop, helium voices & sitars, you hear lionrock's hypnogogic avant-splatter or the solar affection of air, that's because he shares their use of textural organics in the middle of low-key electronic mood music. although the result is not as colourful as lemon jelly, or as amusing as bent, there's a balance that's just as effective, using the power of suggestion instead of cleverness to avoid the pitfalls of so much half-realised, barely aware chill-out that's always been in the market ironically fighting so fiercely for attention.
