I have to agree with the other reviewer, the Soundcarriers have a knack for combining a myriad of influences, yet ending up with a sound that is all their own.

Boil up some late 60s psychedelic stock (J Airplane / Dead / Love / Pyche-era Byrds), add a tablespoon of sizzling hot jazz (Lonnie Smith / Jack McDuff), a dash of cinematic groove (Deep Throat / Hells Belles / Library Funk) and a pinch of folk groove (Pentangle / Trader Horne)... then you have something approaching these guys...

If you're considering trying out this album I strongly recommend it. If you're not sure check some samples out on YouTube. Be prepared for a deeply infectious groove and heavy repetition on your cd / mp3 / record(?!) player.

It's challenging being a group these days - groups come and go, disappearing after an album or two, so it's great that The Soundcarriers are carrying on with their sound, developing and progressing and now achieving classic "peaking with third album" status.
For this third album they have switched to the Ghost Box label (shouldn't they have been there all along?) with characteristic Julian House cover art / packaging and a liner note from Ben Graves, curator of the popular Toys & Techniques blog (long live liner notes!) All they need now is a promo video directed by Peter Strickland and they will have everything covered.
It might be that The Soundcarriers lack the intellectual art / avant garde edge of Broadcast and therefore it would be wrong to expect the radical leaps and changes in direction between albums that so delighted / alarmed people about Trish & co. It's safe to assume that the Soundcarriers are happy to continue in their ethereal blissful neo-psychedelic groove, but within their chosen style they are really developing. I've only had Entropicalia for a week but I've had it in on permanent repeat play and definitely think it is their best album yet. The songs are strong, the vocals (& vocal harmonies) accomplished, both the bass and the drumming are outstandingly inventive from track to track. Most of all, the production (it's tempting to say "sound design") is much improved, not just the careful layers of additional instrumentation (including plenty of Hammond organ and jazzy flute) but the way each sound has been tweaked for effect. The group have obviously paid attention to every detail of the sound and texture.
The album also works very well as a whole, with a good pacing and contrast between tracks, gradually building to the monumental trance-out concluding tracks.

Imagine a band that incorporate elements of some of the best sounds of the late Sixties and early Seventies - Krautrock, sunshine pop, Serge Gainsbourg, acid folk, David Axelrod, Tropicalia, psychedelia, European cinema - and combine those influences into a cohesive, original sounding and addictive 48 minute album of genius. The Soundcarriers are that band and this is their best album yet.

The bass guitar sounds amazing and it dominates throughout and together with the percussion it underpins the sound of this album. Add in the keyboards, lush multi-tracked vocals, guitars, flutes, an Elijah Wood monologue, etc and the result is a totally absorbing trippy, pyschedelic, motorik and cinematic wall of sound. If you enjoyed the sound of Broadcast and Stereolab you'll find much to enjoy here but with this album The Soundcarriers take it to an altogether different level. Buy it, play it loud and prepare to be astonished.
