peaking lights – all the sun that shines (taken from “936“, domino 2011)
peaking lights – birds of paradise dub version (taken from “936“, domino 2011)
The debut album by couple Peaking Lights has turned out to be the long-lasting little furnace of the year: after being released on the tiny Not Not Fun label in February it was picked up for reissue by the larger Domino in November, and is now appearing on “Best of 2011” lists left and right.
I agree: “936” is a weird and wonderful summer afternoon that merges dub, Stereolab and Antena-like wave to great effect. Check out the two tracks above and treat yourself to the full album here.
