|ehr005 Krayola/Gillespie - Book Of The Dead/Anna's Song
'The fifth release from Audenshaw's mini cottage industry arrives in the guise of Krayola and Gillespie, both involving one James Davidson, and both, as expected, maintaining said label's compelling air of off-beam exuberance. Opener 'Book of the Dead' is a cinematic slice of near-tribal funk, while flipside 'Anna's Song' ploughs an altogether more orthodox path, a winsome chunk of acoustic joy spliced to soul-poured beats and probably what Rae & Christian think they sound like.

Next up, more from Emma's House Recordings this time in the shape of a split set featuring Krayola and Gillespie. Limited to a miserly 150 copies, mine's number 99 so getting searching fast. Krayola appear in sci-fi dub meets drum n' bass shocker. 'Book of the Dead' kicks in like a mythical dream meetings at the superhighway crossroads of Dreadzone, Wagon Christ and Biosphere, and damn groovy at that. Flip the disc and you get 'Anna's song' by Gillespie, a more than worthy reason to part with your hard earned cash. Don't know why but I get a feeling of the Smiths when I hear this, not that it's psychotically depressing, but more for the weaving of intricate 60's influences. I wish I knew for certain. Peppered with a lonesome trumpet parping in the background which gives it a smoke filled jazz cafe type melancholic edge, brilliant.
