Starting out on a brand new musical journey after some enforced time out of the industry due to illness, Spirals is the working title of excellent songwriter John Aziz.
His new mix tape (or mini-album) is a real statement of intent – self-written, recorded, produced and mastered. Written with the ambition of creating an epic, brilliant psych-rock album like classic Pink Floyd or Kraftwerk, Spirals draws from and blends together elements of classic song writing and musicianship with modern production techniques.
You can get a taste of what the self-titled debut release has to offer here:
In spite of his retro musical preferences, Spirals is heading down a modern route for the release, making the music available via BitTorrent Bundles in similar fashion to Thom Yorke’s recent surprise solo album. You can also get it at http://spiralsssss.bandcamp.com/releases
So focussed on the music that he abandoned a job writing about economics and business to begin playing again after his enforced break, this release is the first in what looks likely to be a versatile string of music from the songwriter.
Not one to rest on his laurels, he already planning and writing his next release, an acoustic folk mixtape. Ambitious and innovative, this is the work and mind of a true music lover.
