Five - Cocteau Twins

Playing tracks by

Cocteau Twins with Harold Budd, Victor Bermon, L Pierre, Susumu Yokota, Minotaur Shocks and more.

I can't find any info on this mix from the time I made it. But here is some blurb about the brilliant album the show is wrapped around. From

"The Moon and the Melodies (1986) is the product of a one-off collaboration between the Scottish group Cocteau Twins and the American composer Harold Budd. The Cocteau Twins refused to sign the album with the band’s name and used their individual names instead.

The album has the characteristic style — heavily-treated guitar sounds and strangely euphoric vocalising — that can be heard in the group’s other work from the same period, for example on the EP “Echoes in a Shallow Bay” or the album Victorialand. Harold Budd’s stylistic piano tonalities and phrasing on this project are echoed in his solo album, Lovely Thunder, from the same year."

Extra marks for the Instrumental version of Sparrowfall. Their album has been popping off the shelf and into my brain for years now, and it was a treat to hear that particular version again! Great mixes and beautiful music: thanks!
