about the records
Karl Henkell of Record Culture Magazine selected 8 of his favorite records from our catalogue to match each of our 8 moods:
Having a Blast | Leon Lowman – Liquid Diamonds
This happens to have been the first release on Music From Memory, and what a way to kick things off. It’s idyllic, classy, cocktail hour music for the fantasy bar in my mind.
Ready for Action | Trance – JD Twitch / Trance Not Trance
One side of this record is titled “Contemplation”, and will have your mind pleasantly floating off in all directions in a meditative expanding horizon kind of way. On the flip what JD Twitch, of duo Optimo, delivers is hypnotic in a different way. Well suited to the club, or strobed up living room.
Emotional Rollercoaster | Georgia – Immute
Georgia, who’s minds we delved into in the pages of Record Issue 6, are prolific and always delivering up surprising, healing, and mind-expanding music. “Bendires Trasher” is a highlight on this record.
Lost in Dreams | Wilson Tanner – II
This is a really lovely record. It’s contemplative and emotional. There is a theme of water that runs throughout. The collaboration consists of Andrew Wilson, aka Andras who features in Record Issue 7, and John Tanner. Efficient Space, run by Michael Kucyk who features in Record Issue 5, put this one out. Many reasons to pick this one up.
Taking it Easy | Liquid Canoe
As the title suggests, this record is a bit of a mind-expanding psychedelic canoe ride down a calm river. Quite a ride.
A Sense of Melancholy | Annelies Monseré – Happiness Is Within Sight
This record suits the winter months ahead. Plenty of room for thinking here. Another great one from Stroom.
Floating on Clouds | Suso Sáiz & Suzanne Kraft – Between No Things
A modern supergroup of sorts, this record is the collaboration between Suso Sáiz, who features in Record Issue 4, and Suzanne Kraft. Both excellent producers in their own right, this record is an uplifting meeting of the minds.
Calm & Collected | Ruins – Occasional Visits
Another stand out discovery from Stroom that you didn’t know you needed until it was here. Self-assured in an ’80s leather jacket kind of way. This would surely make for good driving music.
