Optimistically-inclined London label No Bad Days launch their new tape series (you guessed it, No Bad Tapes) with Sunsets & Deeper Moods, from UK-based glider Native Cruise. The eight tracks on the ocean blue format are split according to the two parts of its name, also matched by the imprint’s t-shirt-friendly calling card “floating yet punchy”.
On Side A sits dreamy elongations for piña colada fuelled evenings, most comfortingly reflected on ‘5.45am Barbarelles’. On Side B you’ll find more brooding atmospheres, from ‘Import Memory’ with its Pilotwings elasticity, to the Blade Runner-esque ‘Citadel In The Sky’. ‘Midnight Horizon’ caught our as the gnarliest of the bunch with its 808 claps and apocalyptic panpipe melodies.
Sunsets & Deeper Moods is out 24th September – buy from Bandcamp.
