• equatorial group Apricity (LP, £15.75)

    The Equatorial Group’s music has been described in many ways; ramshackle folk-rock, space country, languid Americana... but, perhaps more importantly they believe it to be honest and sincere, derivative of their influences and kissed by their love of simple countrified sonic landscapes. Their ‘sound’, based primarily around pedal steel, heartfelt vocals and dreamy four part harmonies, has been likened to Fleetwood Mac, The Magnolia Electric Company and Emmylou Harris - that said they’ve not been afraid to embrace the inner ‘Crazy Horse’. It is a sound that they have honed during four years of gigging with the likes of Willy Mason, Mark Morriss, William The Conqueror, Joan Shelley and Joana Serrat. The album was recorded at Echo Zoo Studios in Eastbourne, which sits reassuringly close to the band’s beloved Downs and seafront, with producer Dave Lynch (Magic Numbers, Kathryn Williams, Duke Special) at the controls. Tracks: Lights Shine / Juggernauts / Surrogate Funeral / Toy Shark / Burning / Farewell My Lovely / Electric Night / Those Dudes / Motorbikes / Sometime In Spring
