Amazing new album from London psych-beatsmith Paul White on Now Again!

Paul White & The Purple Brain is based around and inspired by the work of little-known Swedish psych-rock guru S.T. Mikael. Heavy on Eastern influences and otherworldly concerns, Mikael’s music ranges from searing electric guitar-led dirges to dreamlike ballads to ghostly atmospheric experiments.

Having been granted access to S.T. Mikael’s back catalogue, Paul White found a unique source of inspiration and challenged himself to create an album using the Swedish multi-instrumentalist’s work as the sole basis for his output. The result is Paul White & The Purple Brain – a remarkably diverse album that defies easy categorisation. 'Marshen Signals' brings to mind the brooding atmospherics and jeep-rattling bass of mid-90s D.I.T.C. productions, whilst 'Alone Again' nods to the pioneers of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Sitar-led tracks such as 'Pride' share common ground with the likes of ‘60s English psych band July and My Guitar Whales – the first single to be taken from the album – could be a classic rap banger remixed for a Hungarian fairground.

For Fans of Madlib, Flying Lotus, Stereolab and J Dilla

Highly Recommended!!!
