Just Landed

A 10 track downtempo album (49m 22s) — released May 27th 2016 on Highwood Recordings

Sophisticated from the off, the set stretches into life with the delicate guitars, dreamy chimes and swaying rhythm of 12" cut 'Tabarin'. Appearing here in its original form, 'Tabarin' soundtracks la dolce vita of the Mediterranean, sweeping through Capri, San Antonio and Casablanca on a swell of swooning strings, sun kissed trumpets and airy flute. The beachfront soul of previous single 'Alive' finds Bing Ji Ling musing on Tibetan mindfulness over Phil's gentle samba groove before the titular 'Just Landed' reclines on the beach, looking out to where the waves chase the sun over the horizon.

Phil delivers a touch of dub on 'Echo', laying a fluid foundation of limber bass and circular steel drums for Suad Khalifa's soaring vocals before the stunning 'Abando', a collaboration with Balearic legend and former Finis Africae member Javier Bergia, brings us to the halfway point.

The flamenco guitar and insistent backbeat of 'Tali Lumi' offers a subtle change of pace, while the african drums, dreamy harp and future primitive melodies of 'Vialas Journey' hint at the rich vegetation of tropical climes.

'Clear Coast' drifts in on the jet stream as Brenda Ray's whispered vocals glide over a verdant blend of guitar, synth and melodica, transporting us to a distant cliff top where the piano led beauty of 'Sea Of Blue' fills the air.
