The latest release on Canada's Seance Centre label focuses on the work of long-serving Dutch experimentalist Michel Banabila, gathering together examples of his "excursions into otherworldly and imagined realms". The first record boasts tracks recorded between 1987 and 2017, shuffling between humid, percussion-led workouts, exotic ambience, dark and creepy soundscapes and sticky electronic/acoustic fusion. The second record (clips of which are not featured here) replicates the track list of the Rotterdam artist's 1983 album Marilli, a sought-after, LSD-inspired trip into Brian Eno and David Byrne territory that remains one of the most thrillingly odd (but pleasingly beautiful) ambient albums of the period. In other words, it's an absolutely essential package.
