Former performer turned producer and studio engineer Maryam Qudus, in between producing acts such as Tune Yards and Speedy Ortiz, has experimented and put together an accomplished debut longplay release of her own.

Full of psyched-out spacey pop tunes reminiscent of Jane Weaver and Stereolab (which is no bad thing), it’s constructed very well and is testament to her much sought after skills developed during her time behind the desk. Vintage astral synths cosmically combine with her experimental sonic trickery formulating happening tunes like Noise Of Everyday Life, Berries & Watch You Cry and the gratifyingly electronic closing track No Past No Future, which could easily pass for a long lost outing from the first blooming of new wave synth.
