Following his Automatic Writing single, issued on the Autumn Equinox in late 2018, Brother Blue opens 2019 with Shoreline Drive, a 5-track EP of dub techno cuts and RP's first release of the new year. It is also fitting that it should come out today, during the Super Blood Wolf Moon, a rare celestial event that echoes some of the themes on these tracks.
Musically, Shoreline Drive brings more excellent electronics on the deeper side of the spectrum to play with the rest of the Bedroom Compost catalog. Tim's work is never less than superb and intimately engaging, and these five tracks are equal parts rugged techno rhythms, sultry dub chords and textured atmospheres that displace the listener. Shoreline Drive recalls not only Detroit classics like Echospace and Deepchord, but also many other deep moments in the Recycled Plastics library, from Ohrwert, Mon0, Axs, Zzzzra, Coppice Halifax and Textural Being, among others...In short, we are beyond happy to have Tim once again here with us, and Shoreline Drive feels both new and home-worn familiar, in all the best ways.
NOTE: The physical edition of Shoreline Drive also contains two additional tracks: "Automatic Writing (Version)" from BC72 and a 2018 remaster of "Summoning UFOs", which previously only appeared on a compilation at the luxurious Silent Season label. With these two extras, Shoreline Drive becomes a 67-minute long dub trip, not to be missed!

Rather than answering why do I love this album, I am gonna offer another question. Why don't you own it already? This is Dub Techno for the connoisseur. This is a piece of class music. I see it as a tribute to the bootlegs from back when vinyl was all there was. Ahh, times do change. Go ahead and download it, the music's boss. Bethelina_DJ
