why we love this

Two souls found a profound connection 6000 miles apart. Expect a beautiful merger of warm sounds and tonal sensibilities.

about the record

‘The Side I Never See’ is a shimmering suite of ten compositions for piano, saxophone, synthesizer and guitar by Hugh Small and Brian Allen Simon.

Hugh forms half of Scottish post-punk duo Vazz, whose work was the subject of a recent retrospective by Belgian label Stroom. Brian is known best for his solo project Anenon, under which name he has released four full length albums and multiple remixes for artists including Ryuichi Sakamoto.

An improvised recording of Brian playing over the Vazz piece ‘Kazimierz’ catalysed this long-distance collaboration. 2000 feet up a mountain in Andalucia, Hugh heard the recording on a broadcast of Brian’s dublab LA radio show. Immediately taken in by Brian’s playing, the pair soon established contact and began discussing the possibility of working together to create something new. The rest, as they say, is history.
