Spike - Orange Cloud Nine

I haven't been able to stop listening to this since grabbing a copy a few weeks ago. The release is a full album of old material from Dutch artist Spike, who privately released a handful of albums in the early 80's. Sounding like the Eagles nicked some acid and then teamed up with The Alan Parsons Project for a fucked up studio session, it's a great collection of off kilter, trippy songs that keep the interest going by combining bitter sweet melodies and enchanting guitar work with some more darker and psychedelic twist and turns. A full release is planned soon.

There aren't many sound clips out there yet but there are quite a few bits off the album to be found on the excellent Golf Channel RA Mix from a few years back. A great listen that features a load of other Golf Channels tracks that we love.

You can download it here.
