Non-rock LP tracks that involve some rock-ish electronic stuff [Fever Ray, John Cale, Everything But The Girl, Alan Vega], chilled ambient texture [Ferdi Schuster, Dream Dolphin], Leftfield balearic fusion [Jpye, Régis Tareau, Régis Tareau, YMA], Funk/soul/beat modern interpretation [MoreEats, Orbs of Light, Lewis Taylor, The Soul Searchers], and interesting international [Bokaye’, CW] – I’m describing the sounds, not the artists, and I’m saving an artist description for last: the new CD (yes, they made me break my vinyl-only tradition to play them), the mighty Boston band Violet Nox. All rank ‘Wow!’.
