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
London's Birthdays will be hosting an album launch for 'Spectral Park' on Monday, 4th February.
Spectral Park will be supporting Unknown Mortal Orchestra on 5th February at Cargo and Girls Names at the Seabright Arms on 26th February.
