Colorlist – Sky Song
New on the Serein label is the return of Colorlist, who also contributed the 10″ vinyl release ‘The Fastest Way To Become The Ocean’ on the label back in 2011. Their new album ‘Sky Song’ is available now for pre-order on either 12″ vinyl or download, officially released on 2nd October.
I’d imagine that in a lot of press and review coverage, the word jazz will be automatically used when describing Colorlist. This is no bad thing at all of course but ‘Sky Songs’ as an album goes that bit deeper, exploring the comforting and earthy sound of Spiritual Jazz, moments that glisten with Ambient qualities and others that adopt a more up beat, percussive or experimental stance. The album is dripping with colour, with more than enough variety to retain your interest. The title track ‘Sky Song’ enlists an analogue synthesizer to further enhance the detail and closing track ‘Safe Years’ offers an equal dose of warm, melancholy swirls set aside sinister twists which eventually build to a crescendo. This is perfect going into the Autumn months and beyond…

Stop it stop it stop it. I’ve just done £30 on the two albums you’ve recommended. No more, I can’t afford it.
Ha ha – thank you Chris. I had hoped that Irregular Crates would help people find otherwise un-discovered music. Nice to see it’s working!
Thanks for this – let’s get the word out about Colorlist 🙂
