The Stargazer's Assistant
One of the best of the new groups to rise in Europe in the last few years is Guapo. Their album 5 Suns instantly caught my ear when it came out . In 2004 I had the pleasure of meeting them in person and mixing a few shows in France and Belgium and more recently at the RIO festival last year.Dave Smith and Daniel O'Sullivan are hard working prolific and dedicated musicians who besides of Guapo collaborate on numerous other offshoots and projects.
The Stragazer's Asistant - The Other Side Of The Island is a soundtrack for a exhibition/installation of Dave Smith Sculptures and what I like about it is the fact that besides serving as a background to the installation it also makes a fascinating listening experience on its own. Much use of the studio as a creative instrument and interesting sound designs this album evokes moody atmospheres sinister sub sonic events and some startling climax's.
The album can be purchased here
