Nick Brennan is Tripswitch and as Tripswitch he’s released music that is just fantastic stuff! Nick has this knack for making music that feels well-worn and new at the same time. There’s something about his music that’s instantly familiar and feels like he’s always been part of your record collection. There’s something very English about it, too, because his music is very dreamy and idyllic with a undercurrent of darkness that surfaces from time to time.
It’s something I also recognized in Ott, who was our guest last June, and I think this strand can be traced back to The Orb, which can be further traced back to Pink Floyd. But that begs the question, how much further does this tradition go back in the history of English music?
We’ll find out when we talk with Nick. We’ll also talk about his alter ego, Codemonkey, and his label, Section Records.
