Eglo co-founder Floating Points has uploaded the A-side from his forthcoming new 12″ on Eglo.
Entitled ‘King Bromeliad’, the tune finds Floating Points (aka. Sam Shepherd) embarking on another sprawling 8 and a half minute long groove odyssey. This is the first original material he’s put his name to since 2013’s gorgeous single sided ‘Wires’ 12″, ‘King Bromeliad’ displays all off Shepherd’s classic trademarks-with live drums and rhodes organs playing a big part. Riding out on grooves generated by the funky interplay of all his instruments, there’s also time for his signature synth flourish-found on the likes of ‘Marilyn’ and ‘Myrtle Avenue’, to make an appearance. Sure to provide the soundtrack to more than a few smiling faces on rooftoops and boats this summer, it would appear this release was as ever well worth the wait. Paired with the as yet unheard ‘Montparnasse’, Shepherd has so far remained coy on a release date.
