Monday's Long Song



I'm not sure why I haven't bought more stuff by Floating  Points than I have as everything I have heard I have loved. Kuiper was released as a 12" single back in 2016 and is one of those singles that you get your money's worth from, thirty two and a half minutes over two tracks. I'm not sure if the title is referencing the Kuiper Belt, a body in the outer solar system which is similar to the Asteriod Belt but is far larger possibly up to 200 times the size, but it does end up "out there" it builds and builds, with some pretty superb drumming and suitably spacey synth sounds that eventually slows to a chilled conclusion. love it

I traditionally check out the Monday Long Songs early in the day with mug of coffee in my hand, but, due to shift changes, this week I find myself listening late in the evening while slurping on a glass of red. 'Kuiper' couldn't be a more perfect soundtrack in the circumstances.
