**Hand-stamped labels** L.I.E.S. fix their sights on the horizon with two shots of motorik groove for the highway. Luke Wyatt aka Torn Hawk follows his excellent transformations of Karen Gwyer with a sprawl of chugging machine patter and wide-open country/krautrock guitar riffing called 'Born To Win (Life After Ghostbusters)', and Willie Burns hits it out of the park with a mighty B-side as Black Deer running sprung breaks and throbbing bass under virulent vaulting arpeggios - killer tune!
'Restless Idylls' is the long awaited debut album from Tropic Of Cancer. It's another milestone in Blackest Ever Black's catalogue; a triumph of decadent misery and gothic romance built around eight songs written by the group's sole permanent member Camella Lobo in Los Angeles, and beautifully complemented by production from Karl O'Connor, aka Regis, who released ToC's incredible debut back in 2009 on his Downwards label. Lobo's music has come to define the wave zeitgeist, presenting a sound irrevocably haunted by the past, yet reflective of the present with uncanny, scrying vision.
