If, like us, you have a penchant for the weird and wonderful, we'd really recommend the new Quimper album : https://quimper.bandcamp.com/album/perdide

Released somewhat under the radar but for our money, easily one of the best albums of the year. Geniuser (Mick Allen, ex-Wolfgang Press + Giuseppe De Bellis) 'I Am' : (http://geniuser.store/shop/) Fantastic Brother Quay-esque video by Andersen M Studio (who, coincidentally designed lots of Piano Magic sleeves) : https://vimeo.com/280928975
