The Avalanches - Reflecting Light / Wherever You Go
Two tracks here and as you have come to expect from The Avalanches they are both of supreme quality. The main draw here is the hauntingly soulful 'Reflecting Light'. It's a beautiful song. It took a good minute or so for my brain to kick in and realise who the main vocalist was. Sananda Maitreya's voice is one that you almost certainly already know from his previous 80s incarnation as Terence Trent D'arby. It's still as potent and intoxicating as it ever was. But when layered over the top of some delicate and joyful sounds, the result is something extraordinary.
