Cosmic Elements’ 15th release is a big one, a summery balearic lounge/chill EP from Tom Conrad alongside the brilliant Andy Compton (The Rurals) with ‘Textures EP’.
First up is the lush fusion of summery sounds that make up ‘Okinawa’, an ode the beauty of Okinawa prefecture Japan. Andy Compton (The Rurals) is on lead guitar here as he is on the next track ‘Phoenix’, a broken beat, balearic soulful jam with jazzy guitar and a smooth funky bassline. For the closing track, Tom decided to make a track that would fit with observing stars in the night sky and believe it or not, it’s called ‘Stargazer’. Soft arpeggiated rhythms, smooth pads, uplifting keys and ethereal but subtle bell sounds (to represent glowing) are the order of the day, so you tell us – is it a star gazing record?
All tracks Written, Arranged and Produced by Tom Conrad.
Lead guitar on Phoenix and Okinawa by Andy Compton.
