Those nights we stay in, but outside of the forbidden cellar, we tend to fall asleep to the cycle of a cylinder light that projects upon the walls of the bedroom the shapes of future constellations in the pantheon of musical glory. Last night, it was Jeans Wilder who showed up in this makeshift firmament, up there with other luminaries of the hazy conspiracy such as Panda Bear, Ariel Pink and Atlas Sound, and it was ‘In My Dreams’, this purring lo-fi Minuet purloined from 1960s Motown (if only Detroit had specialised in the pharmaceutical industry rather than automobiles) that took us by the hand into a land of overexposed Super-8 flashbacks of good times where all surfaces are soft and warm, and all bad vibes vanquished.
And here you have a very exclusive premiere of the video.
We continue our pilgrimage through the land of suspended emotion with this wonderful remix of FUR’s Clears Throat by our favourite progressive navigators Solar Bears. If the telepaths in Minority Report received premonitions of hear-rending break-ups rather than murders to be, this would be the Balearic ballad that they would whistle in their nocturnal pool, primary colours of melancholy fade into the vaults of memory, a sweet aftertaste lingers, for life hurts, otherwise it’s nothing.
HOLD THE PRESS!!! Tomorrow night 20JFG presents a special one-off sermon from our beloved Hype Williams in our beloved second home of Berlin…….
