V/A "Night Palms" HOBO CAMP MODERN SYNTH BOOGIE VOCODER FUNK COMPILATION LP
Brian Ellis kicks off the compilation with “Tides”, a drifting instrumental opus of melodic currents that glide and weave in and out of each other. BOY DUDE introduces the first vocal with “Modern Day Confusion”, a wavy, pitch-bending journey describing the mental woes and issues in modern society. XL Middleton and Ghost close out the A side with “Forgot About Each Other”; a mid-tempo, keyboard-forward groove, echoing the notions of dying or diminishing love, accompanied by his signature emotive driving keyboard lead. On the B Side, Mat/Matix starts it off with the deeply aquatic “Bay Breeze”, which swings along with textured padding with an epic wet guitar solo by Liam Kevany. Moon B pours “Marina Player” directly into the harbor with a beautifully mutant and tranquil theme that would seem perfectly-placed in a moody montage scene of a speedboat cruising silkily along the waters at night. Jomeo Pugz ups the ante in “Hidden Zone”, a drum machine love anthem that describes the nerve-racking and inspiring aspects of new lust, romance, and the possibilities created between two potential mates sharing space together—yet alone. “Deregulate” by Elegant Borzoi closes it out with sweeping synths, loose grooves, and the subtle and sweet vocal accompaniment of Megan Doherty (of Social Lovers).
This LP is dedicated to designer, artist and friend, Trevor Tarczynski (RIP). The title “Night Palms” was a recurring theme in his work, and the jacket cover was created from his archives.
