The legendary Oscar synthesizer takes centre stage to allow Correlations to explore a heavier electronic palette on second LP ‘Night Acquisitions’. The new album, presented on deep red cassette shell + digital download, follows last year’s pastoral LP ‘Before The Heat’ and recent 7-inch ‘You Don’t Talk For Me’.
Also making an appearance on the LP is Toydrum’s Pablo Clements, as co-writer of the title track, whilst Simon James of Black Channels, The Simonsound and Akiha Den Den plays on and has co-mixed and mastered ‘Night Acquisitions’.
It was whilst working on tracks with Toydrum that Correlations’ Neil Hale first got to use the Oscar synthesizer and, backed up with other classic bits of kit, it’s unsurprisingly underpinned many of his compositions since. A few of the tracks featured on Night Acquisitions started life during these sessions.
Film scores including Steven Price’s Oscar winning compositions for ‘Gravity’ and that of Ben Wheatley’s ‘A Field In England’ also proved a big influence, as the tracks on this latest Correlations’ LP took shape. So, dare you take the red pill?
Tracks 1-14 written & produced by N.Hale. Track 1 co-written with P.Clements. EMS played by Simon James. Cassette cover art & layout by Eric Adrian Lee.
