‘Sausalito (Is The Place To Go)’ by Ohio ExpressThis is what Graham Gouldman could do in his sleep. Shame it’s not the greatest quality. It’s definitely one of the greatest bubblegum songs.

Laura J. Martin is one of the UK’s most bewitching artists. Her original marriage of virtuoso flute-playing, mandolin-plucking and peerless mastery of the loop station, makes for a unique and entrancing live experience. She has performed acclaimed sets on key stages at many UK festivals, including a nigh on legendary appearance at Green Man in 2012 when she lured a crowd of thousands away from Van Morrison’s headline set on the main stage.

Her debut album (The Hangman Tree – Feb 2012) earned excellent reviews from Uncut & Q. Its successor, the brilliant and mysterious ‘Dazzle Days’, was one of the most original music statements of 2013, and one of Crackling Vinyl’s absolute favourites. Laura’s music is fresh, life-affirming and abundant with impossible to shake melodic invention.

‘Dazzle Days’ was recorded over three months on a journey from Maghull to Hoxton via Reykjavík. 13 sumptuous tracks bumping into each other like a Brownian motion demonstration, these audio vitamins bed down to represent Laura’s best work yet. ‘Dazzle Days’ features now regular collaborators Mike Lindsay (Tunng) on vocals and Benge who mixed and added synth, Enoesqe beds and Oldfield reverbs at his studio Play Industries.

Thematically expanding on the experience of producing a commissioned soundtrack for the BFI and with a burgeoning interest in golden age composers such as Sven Libaek and Francois de Roubaix. Laura also took inspiration from Jeremy Steigs collaboration album with Pia Zaidora. Imagine ‘Butterfly ‘starring and sound tracked by Laura Nyro, yeah that good.

Tighter pop tunes but convoluted structures. Wonky progressive flute but laurel canyon sweetness, it’s all present and correct.

The album will be preceded by the track ‘Red Flag’ as a pay what you want on bandcamp. Laura recently completed a two month tour with Euros Childs both as support and a member of Euros’s band.

Need a further push then think Judee Sill and Linda Perhacs in the studio with Arthur Verocai.

‘My Baby Likes To Boogaloo’ by Don GardnerThis is phenomenal. Dirty, garage soul. I can’t think of much like this. Any recommendations’d be much appreciated. This smashes all of my buttons. Perfect single, for me.
