"Midnight Features is a new series of 'fantasy records' imagined by Lilacs & Champagne's Emil Amos and Alex Hall. Inspired by the classic Marvel comic series What If?, the duo seek to place themselves into various musical eras, expanding and perverting each new stylistic context they land in. This first volume, Shower Scene, was inspired by the background music from 1970s TV shows - the frenetic solos, sleazy funk lines and jazz-influenced sounds that subtly lurk behind the tales of crime, drama and passion. The band scratch beneath the soft-focus surface of this era, discovering a darker, more realized territory. On 'Sensations' they sound like a blazing, psych-jazz version of The Soft Machine, whereas on 'Maple Street' they approximate the avant-jazz Moondog might have made if he'd lived into the era of sampling. Limited numbered edition of 1000. Includes download code."
