The wider world begins to recognise Ellis Meade with this gig… following past radio play on BBC Introducing, Ellis has been asked to perform live at their regular Ruby Lounge gig showcasing the best new talent. This will also be recorded live for future broadcast on the show.
Dropping as a free download followed up by a limited stamped vinyl pressing (keep an eye here), Strange U (aka Kashmere aka King Kashmere IV and Doctor Zygote) follow up their 2013 Eglo debut (The Scarlet Jungle EP) with some darker shit.
Golden Skies seeks to be even more sweeping – have a listen to the full album over at Pitchfork Advance. My personal favourite at the time of writing is Light Age.
It’s out this coming Monday, 25th August on LP, CD and download.

This one looks interesting from the peeps at BBE. This album originally came out in 1978 on Nestor Records. They’ve gone and found the original masters from arranger/producer Reindorf Nana Oppong, transferred them to digital – and even found unreleased material.
It’s out on CD and double LP as well as digital – order from BBE direct, where you can also listen to previews, or check digital links below.
