Floating Points - Elaenia


Recommended Posts

Sam Shepherd will release his first full-length on November 6th through his own label/imprint Pluto. In previewing the seven-track release, an edit of Silhouettes (I, II, III) - an eleven-minute album track - has been shared as the album's lead single.

I love how jazzy the preview is... this may well turn out to be a very interesting debut.

Just got this in an e-mail from Luaka Bop (he's releasing the album on his own label but I think Luaka Bop will be distributing it in the US):


Tomorrow, August 26, Floating Points will debut the live version of Silhouettes (I, II & III) together with an 11-piece ensemble (!!) at the magnificent Fort Christo Punto, at Dimensions Festival, in Croatia, The show will be streamed live around the world from 2.30pm EST, via Boiler Room.

I think I first heard floating points with his remix of daedelus. He's awesome. It almost sounds like Daedelus on that song? Alfred Darlington has a distinct bass voice. Sounds super brainfeeder all the way. Sounds like miguel-atwood ferguson string arrangements, maybe thundercat on bass?

This is a lovely release.


If this is jazzy then I like jazzy electronic music. It's more on the flylo end of that spectrum of jazz-tinged electronic music I guess. I alway associate "jazzier stuff" as anything akin to mid-90s through early 00s Ninja Tune / upbeat trip-hop stuff which was great at the time but now stuff like that I avoid usually - you know fedora wearing late 30s dude who says he likes "chillout music" kind of stuff.

I bagged the flac from bleep, just on a whim without hearing any previews. Just like the good old days, where you would take a punt on choosing a record by using instinct and a keen sense of guile.


Seems as though I still possess The Craft. It's a fantastic record.


*pats myself smugly on back*
