Fascinating Fingers

by Shawn Lee & Clutchy Hopkins

This second collaboration by Ubiquity Records mainstays Shawn Lee and Clutchy Hopkins is quite different from their first outing together. There is still the same backdrop of spaced-out rhythms and futuristic instruments, but this time around, the two have focused more on creating different sounds and a more lush, textured album.

Also, for the first time in my Clutchy Hopkins memory, there is singing, provided by The Superimposers on one track. This is a very chilled album, although its variety makes it less monotonous than Clutchy's other albums (which are monotonous in a good way - it's not a criticism).

As with last time, the album artwork is provided by the incredible Jim Mahfood, which is very cool.
