Son Kite are back with a new 12", which in a way gives us a new Son Kite sound and feel. Slow, full of emotions, more melodic, very open and with a strong outdoor feel. If this is a sign for the upcoming third Son Kite album that is in the works now, than I am a happy man.
The A side, Receive part 2, is just amazing, the best way to describe it will be as a blend of Der Dritte Raum s Hail-Bopp and early Union Jack. Mellow, moving, emotional, really grabs you from the inside and sends your spirit flying around. So full of music. Excellent. Best Son Kite track in my stereo for a long time.
The B side, Sunset Street, has more of the familiar Son Kite tribal rhythm, but topped with penetrating flying melodic lines and a mellow yet optimistic feel. Later the story develops into a happy ecstatic tribal explosion. I must say if feel more as a Sunrise Field than a Sunset Street to me.
