Alastair Galbraith – Seconds Mark III [ACOLOUR028]

Alastair Galbraith is considered nothing less than a genius around these parts. A New Zealand underground legend active since the ’80s, his solo works have seen release on Siltbreeze, MIE, Emperor Jones and Grapefruit Records while his own labels, Xpressway and Next Best Way have released the likes of The Dead C and Damo Suzuki. His list of collaborators reads like a who’s who of freeform musicianship: Peter Jefferies, Bruce Russell, Robert Scott (The Clean; Flying Nun) and Maxine Funke to name but a few. Seconds Mark III is Galbraith’s first solo album since Mass (2010) and is a collage of pensive, longing and almost forgotten pieces stitched in his inimitable style. A thrilling addition to A Colourful Storm’s ever-expansive catalogue. 21-track LP

R. Campana & D. Reggi – Sequence Unity [ACOLOUR018]

A Colourful Storm compiles three tracks from the vaults of R. Campana & D. Reggi, two producers active in the early 2000’s who released EP’s on First Cut and, more notably, Groovepressure (home to Stopouts, A² and Robin Ball). Three-track EP revived from a period of European underground club music where breaks, electro and tech-house merged into unexpected new forms.
