Stroom put together a vital collection of new and old tracks from the archives of Scottish Vazz. It finds common ground between the realms of ambient, post-punk, ethereal and new-wave - executed with such effortless grace and prowess that it's truly dumbfounding as to how these guys didn't make it at the time. Light, cotton-sheeted ambience mixed with dreamy vocals and stripped bare rhythms - certainly of interest for anyone who's mined the Les Disques du Crépuscule backcat, into Malaria! or even the more recent (KILLER) Monokultur LP.. (NM/NM).
