Coral Island Girl by Restlesslist

Never before has an instrumental prog album of shape shifting Indie, space rock samba, swing, samples and post rock come together in such a British and indefatigably commanding style, a tropical paradise of a record that journeys deep into the minds eye of British psyche and myth. A Caribbean sonic mirage of operatic proportions, weaving a tale that has to be heard to be believed. This is a full on "listen to the whole bloody album" type of record, the awesome spoken word story weaving together a magical maelstrom of  sounds, images and tall tales. The album is a Coral Island Girl by Restlesslist and it's out on vinyl and download in September. In the meantime the whole thing is streaming on Soundcloud.
