THE GREEN CHILD 'Shimmering Basset' LP
The second brilliant album from The Green Child - a duo featuring Total Control and Eddy Current Suppression Ring guitarist Mikey Young and Raven Mahon.
The duo were initially a long-distance project between Young and Mahon, releasing their eponymous debut in 2018 while the latter still lived in California. The pair now live together in the seaside Victorian town of Rye, where they recorded ‘Shimmering Basset’. The sound of the new album is more lucid than their haze of their debut with the duo drawing their spectral pop sound from an illusory past as much as they advance into newer pastures. Broadly retro-futuristic in scope, verdant acres of lushly evocative synthesizers and vintage drum machines underpin the upbeat and uncanny sound scapes. Highly recommended!
