StrangeFlow Man this is awesome - a psychedelic mix with elements reminding me of Broadcast, Stereolab, the Heliocentrics and Ghost Funk Orchestra. Jazzy, floating, beautiful and crazy. Yummie Yummie - and it's really hard to pick a favourite, but "Choose your own adventure" got me me at first time listening. Big recommendation! Favorite track: Choose Your Own Adventure.

huichilobitos_11_ The album is plenty of fenomenal tracks. It's not easy to name a single fave, but "Eggs" is terrific and brings me goosebumps. Favorite track: Eggs.

Zachary Preston At times it is as though Éric Mouquet is summoning the spirits of Martin Denny and Michel Sanchez as rendered in a voice that combines Yma Sumac's other worldliness with a somewhat more familiar timbre like, say, Dido's. Favorite track: The Conservation Of Energy.

about

London ensemble Vanishing Twin originally released their debut album
“Choose Your Own Adventure” in 2016 via Soundway Records.

Formed in 2015, Vanishing Twin came together to make an exploratory record that marries oblique English pop with a palette of arkestral sounds. Having previously released a string of conceptual cassettes under the name Orlando, founder Cathy Lucas named the group after her vanishing twin, an identical sister absorbed in utero, when they were both still a cluster of cells.

Enlisting the help of producer Malcolm Catto (Heliocentrics, DJ Shadow, The Gaslamp Killer) the band began work at his London studio, Quatermass Sound Lab, last spring. Recording the basis for eight tracks, they blended structure and improvisation in pop songs that describe a personal mythology through the adventures of Lucas’ vanished twin.

Drawing on sounds outside of the usual pop vocabulary, the group used forgotten drum machines, home-made electronics, vibraphones, tablas, and harp to invoke the esoteric psychedelia of lost soundtracks, radiophonic experiments and minimal music orchestras. In a studio that Catto built for maximum atmosphere and minimum interfere, and crammed with obscure vintage equipment, he brought his own distinctive sonics to the table, informed by outsider jazz, Italian library music and ethnographic field recordings.

Vanishing Twin is made up of singer Cathy Lucas (Innerspace Orchestra), drummer Valentina Magaletti (Raime, Tomaga, Uuuu, Neon Neon), bassist Susumu Mukai (Zongamin, Floating Points), library music head Phil M.F.U. (Man From Uranus, Broadcast) on strange sounds, and film maker and visual artist Elliott Arndt on flute and percussion.
