Sam Dust has been kicking around musical ideas for a while, but with LA Priest it feels like he finally hit gold. Dust started off as a member in futuristic British quartet Late Of The Pier and then released a one-off 12" as LA Priest for Erol Alkan’s Phantasy label back in 2007.
In the intervening years, Dust went to Denmark to study “the effects of the Ivittuut region’s electro-magnetic phenomena on recorded sound” in Greenland, and continued making music. “Oino” is the first thing he’s released since, and it sounds like a funk song vacuumed up by a synthesizer, then rescued by its pop master.
LA Priest tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Mar 2015.
