Cooper, Mike – “White Shadows In The South Seas” – [Room 40]

Experiemental tropicalia. Mike Cooper is 70 years old, and actually has done a lot in the blues/folk world. A regular on John Peel from 69-75 apparently. This release doesn’t bring you down at all though. Romantically tinged “pacific sunset-like dream spanning the horizon in pulsing waves of richly coloured rhythms, tropical sound fields and pacific-inspired slide guitar”. Singing birds, rolling rhythms, looping patterns, mai tai treated beats. All with a modern, electronic edge. Arthur Lyman and Martin Denny would approve. Polynesia daydreaming. Hawaiian visions.
