Singapore Police Background is a hypnagogic collaboration between UK sound makers James Wilson (Opt Out) and Dan Burwood (Calm!) both of whom have released music on Moonside Tapes. The album oozes around somewhere in the ambient / drone areas and is made from tape loops, synths, samples, guitar and piano, with initial recordings done together and then polished separately. It’s simultaneously soothing and unsettling and seems to inhabit that area halfway between sleep and consciousness. Recommended listening conditions are in late night prone floor based contemplation, or on headphones in a hectic overly lit urban transit hub at rush hour.
Incredible work! Not precisely drone by my terms, but drone enough for me to say that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, which is why I love drone in the first place! Such nuanced, yet raw sounds! Highly recommended! I have no idea how this label finds such great and lesser known artists.
