These are the real pictures, beaming through some imaginary desert radio you yearn to see, but can’t, even though you drop synthetics to try. If you see them, you’ll find Stuart Thomas’s Mountain Range. On his first EP, A Heart Upon, there’s nothing but beauty, and these amazingly liquid silhouettes running rapid through the arms of mother nature. The way in which the sounds are arranged deliver a great sense of ease. Thomas feels what he’s doing, and he’s taking us to some unforgettable places in the process.
Part human, part purveyor of neptune electronics, JRCA has a knack for fitting lush samples on top of what could easily be imagined as a dusty noise pop jamboree, sprinkled with Caribou esque soundscapes.
