Elusive Edinburgh foursome Mammal have been brewing this tasty stew of retro electronica for ages, but it’s worth the wait. Like The Magnificents in a chill-out tent or Boards of Canada jamming with Bob Moog, this mostly instrumental fare is a consummate and sumptuous trip through analogue synth heaven, like the soundtrack to the best hippy-trip 70s space travel documentary you’ve never seen.
Sweeping from delicate to creepy to triumphant, 7VWWVW (turn your magazine upside down), bypasses the brain and goes straight to the heart, conjuring deep emotional resonance as it does. Beautiful music to soundtrack the beautiful moments in your life.
