Boomkat Product Review:
After exploring the nether regions of disco and related spectrum of psychedelic styles, Light Sounds Dark turn inward to locate The Acceptable Presence, revealing a worldly, mostly downtempo collection of fancies from Enno Velthuys, Necronomicon, Pseudo Code, Delta-Sleep-Inducing Peptide and other esoteric oddballs of the late 20th century.
In the classic vein of eccentric British collectors, they present a real cabinet of curios and obscurities this time, putting names to some tracks we’ve heard before, but never knew the names of (Pseudo Code’s haunting Far Away From My Own Land) and introducing a spellbinding ruck of new-old names and gems to explore, including the ethereal High Spirits Choir of Holy Spirit School, and a proper quaalude rock dose from The Instant Automatons. Basically decades worth of prime digging research distilled in 2 slabs of (slightly crappy quality) wax.
From LSD’s own tongue: “What is love? we had away once then we lost it. So Russ told us we got to find it and Yazz said it was up but Elvis said it was down. The West went out and Harrods went in if only Essex could have shown us before Sid bloody murdered it. No matter. At Light Sounds Dark we like ours with Kurds anyway. Unequivocal love, 100% pure love love on top of love.. its hard.”
