Julio Bashmore – Husk

The man JB is pretty untouchable at the moment.* Back in July Julio Bashmore unleashed probably the tune of the year with the promise that it “shall echo through the ages.” Such has been its success, and that of Bashmore’s other releases over the past twelve months, that you suspect he could have chosen any old nonsense for his next release and everyone would still have been aghast at the genius of the ginger-bearded Bristolian.

However, what he has chosen is not any old nonsense. ‘Husk’ appeared yesterday, and is the third release on the Boardwalk Records imprint he launched with ‘Au Seve’. It is a futuristic sonic journey which encompasses insistent wobbly synths, epic percussion crescendos and Bashmore’s trademark melodic bass plod. It even has a nice flute.

All in all, it’s a winner. Business as usual, then.

*He’s also untouchable at pong… Check out his website for the chance to win a JB set at your houseparty, if you beat him at pong. We’ve tried (A LOT) and think the game may, just may, be rigged.
