“Before The Heat”, the fabulous debut album from Correlations experienced some delays at the pressing plant, but has now arrived in all it’s glory. Released 17th June, the LP and digital are now available to order from the Castles in Space bandcamp site. It’s a limited and numbered edition of 300 copies pressed up on beautiful “full moon” wax. A digital download card is included with the record.
Correlations are Neil Hale and Stuart Cullen (aka Pilote). Based in Brighton and Frome they have made a wonderful record which is a genre defining mix of electronics, acid, psyche, krautrock and acoustic folk. With vocoders.
Neil and Stuart have been releasing music under various guises for several years. Stuart’s last Pilote LP “The Slowdown” gathered a lot of acclaim and radio play particularly across BBC Radio 6 Music shows including Lauren Laverne.
“Before The Heat” draws on electronic influences from artists such as Cluster/Harmonia/Ashra to other favourites such as Felt, Nick Drake and classic psych-folk loner, Gary Higgins. The record was mixed with the assistance of old friend Simon James from The Simon Sound and Black Channels who have previously released a massively successful 10” EP on Dealth Waltz records.
