Mexican Summer and Spectral Park are pleased to share a free download of 'Ornaments' - the second single from Spectral Park's eponymous debut album, available from 4th February on Mexican Summer.
Spectral Park's debut full-length is the auspices of pop brainchild Luke Donovan, who played all of the music (and records) on the record. These are songs borne from the trash, literally sourced from a box of records the Southampton multi-instrumentalist found on a walk by a council block's curbside garbage. Donovan chopped them up and fed them through his sampler, warped and warbling, pitch-bent snippets of notes, rhythms and loops spanning disparate portions of musical history. Then he started recording live instrumentation and heavily-treated vocals over them, creating a gritty, noisy, yet wide-eyed and exuberant dive into manic, '60s psychedelic, clear-eyed flower child reveries of reverberation and pop chaos
