    aA Recordings are proud to release Enjoying Moths, the debut album by its in-house sonic alchemist Softpriest. The album is an uplifting, smile-inducing album with a rampant sense of joy and humour. Long influenced by Brian Wilson collaborator Van Dyke Parks , this is Softpriest's interpretation of Van Dyke gone disco; bonkers instrumental electronica that draws on the analogue production of Joe Meek, the futuristic reach of the Radiophonic Workshop and hints towards electronic pioneers Kingsley & Perrey, the percussive style of Esquivel and finds a niche in the crevice where video game scores meet choral vocals and 303 beats. A former member of Manchester pop band The Ruby Tuesdays, Softpriest-aka Charles Bayley has been a punk, a techno-head and latterly the king of exotica. TRACKLIST: 1. Jarmy Days 2. More Roar More 3.
