The third and (for now) final chapter of the big book of Woolfy vs Projections (aka Simon James and Dan Hastie) completes the arc that began with The Astral Projections of Starlight (PERMVAC 030CD, 2008) and The Return of Love (PERMVAC 096CD, 2012). The California-based duo's albums are all loosely based on the adventures of the lost astronaut Captain Starlight, the eponymous hero of German duo Zazu's 1979 balearic rock classic. "Captain Starlight" is a useful reference point for the sound of Woolfy vs Projections, who deliver a deep balearic twilight vibe combined with a classic west coast sound, dubbed disco, beard rock, and a heavy funk bounce. Tracks like "Absynth" (which Resident Advisor compared to "Air covering Steely Dan"), "Neeve," or "Set Me Loose" are all modern classics. Stations perfects the duo's technique of filtering a psychedelic folk album through a modern-day disco aesthetic. Whether it's spaced-out house jams like "Combination" and "Tangiers," the idyllic vibes of "Walkaway," or "The Bright Light of the Truth," a hazy mood stretches over the album, which also includes a careful reconstruction of Odyssey's 1974 balearic classic "Who" to bring the listener into a state of bliss. Stations bring the space epic of Captain Starlight to a graceful end. Features Michaela and El Javi.
