Peaking Lights – 936 (Weird World)
I completely misjudged this when I first heard it, and wondered what all the fuss was about it. It seemed to hint at dodgy 90s coffee table dub, the sort of thing that crept out on Ninja Tune, or those ambient dub albums. Which goes to show how wrong I can be sometimes. I shudder at terms like hypnogogic pop or chill wave or such like, but this is the dub side of that sort of caper, I guess. Deep, psychedelic dub that manages to be trippy and colourful and detailed without ever forgetting to drop the bass. Check out the track I’ve posted – that is speaker shaking stuff. Not the sort of thing you expect a hippy couple from Wisconsin to come up with, but I’m damn glad they did.
