This is my favourite Roxy Music cover of all time and a certified end of the night classic. Thank you so much for bringing it back, can't wait for the whole release!
Favorite track: Mother of Pearl.
Johanna Pigott’s Scribble project floated through the airwaves Down Under during the first years of the 80’s, gathered here is a succinct collection of her dreamy electronic pop from that era with long term collaborator Todd Hunter. There’s an enigmatic feel woven throughout, songs such as “River” set sail on an imagined Antipodean Balearic vibe, while blissful end-of-nighter “Mother of Pearl” would likely get DJ Harvey in a spin. ‘The Party’ poignantly mulls missing the big night out, while “Mr Calico’ navigates spooked out noir before the eerie synth-waves of “B4” (rearranged by local maestro Hysteric)
Beautifully remastered by Dan Elleson the album also features a lovely innersleeve of reverse artwork.

listening to this mix I can close my eyes and have an epic dance party of one, transported to a dark loud place surrounded by beautiful sweaty creatures, as if it was any year other than 2020 djcaptainplanet
