Review: To simply call Mike Cooper a folk guitarist and vocalist would do the man no justice. Of course, he has put out a majority of slow-burning folk ballads, but Cooper has also dabbled in plenty of electronica and exotica. White Shadows In The South Seas was originally out on CD through Laurence English's Room40 back in 2013, but Scotland's Sacred Summits have decided to give it their vinyl baptism, and it's not surprise given how well it fits into their catalogue. This album is an explosion of moods, sounds and styles, making it both enchanting and excellent, but also impossible to pin down into one genre. The slow-burning exotica of the opener Dr Derelict somehow manages to sink smoothly into the tripping drums and twisted guitar riffs belonging to "White Shadows". It's simply to good to describe in words, and we're certain that this will make someone's top 5 releases of the year in the experimental charts. Cannot be missed.
