Deeply Soulful Summer Listening
on 25 August 2005
First of all, I would like to say a sad farewell to Mark Doyle who in the sleevenotes tells us this will be his final compilation to compile for the Hed Kandi series. I have to say that he has touched me in a positive way with his selections and I wish him all the best in the future. On to the music.
This album in my opinion is one of the better Beach House releases. Last year's release was a bit too underground and dark for my liking. This year's is full of sunshine and happiness beginning with Eddy Meets Yannah's fantastic, 'Reach The Sky'. Other well-produced tracks come from Kuppercoco, who give us an epic 10 minute journey, Lisa Shaw, Latrice and my favourite of the first disc, 'Can't Read Your Mind' by King DK.
The pace picks up a notch on disc two with sublime anthems from Aya, Peyton, Roachford, Mylo and Steve Mac. All in all, this album is perfect for those hot summer days and just reminds me of what I'm missing this summer on a tiny white isle in the Meditteranean. Better grab my Sun Factor 60 then...
