|1.||"Introduction To Lisboa"|
Gary Caruth may not be prolific - thus far, he's released just two 12" singles under the Sad City guise in three years - but his music rarely fails to disappoint. Introduction To Lisboa, his second 12" for Phonica Special Editions, is another dreamy, slow-burning delight. All six tracks are woozy, evocative and immersive in feel, with soft focus rhythms underpinning bespoke ambient pads, kaleidoscopic melodies (see the superb "Scyphozoa") and intoxicated textures. The results are rarely less than hugely enjoyable, with the title track - a bustling fusion of Chris Watson style field recordings and drifting ambience - being particularly memorable.
