Boring & Weird Historical Music

High Focus Records
Format: ,

Counting Trip-Hop, Ambient, West African High Life, Dancehall, Jungle, Folk and Film Soundtracks as his influences, there is something for everyone on this creative masterpiece from South London avant-garde producer, and long time High Focus collobator, Telemachus. It’s predominantly an instrumental affair but it does have a handful of collaborations with vocalists Killa P, Jerome Thomas, RHI, Penelope Oddity and Chris Belson onbaord. I Am Delicious And Cute. So I Will Go Buy Again is a meditative journey upriver, whilst Wickedest Ting completely flips the switch with a dancehall barrage from Killa P. Another highlight is the apocalyptic jazz of Greed which features the remarkable neo-soul vocals of Jerome Thomas.

During times of such uncertainty, music and its healing properties have become even more vital. Boring & Weird Historical Music is a calming, curative and monumental 15 track journey through the mind of the enigma that is Telemachus. As he himself puts it: ‘the album certainly rewards a thorough and engrossed listen, but equally the general atmosphere is pleasant enough to play for your auntie when she comes for tea.’

This limited edition double LP comes in a premium gatefold sleeve, with exclusive artwork as well as the the story of ‘Uncle Som’, a peculiar parable, upon which the album is based around
