Heights Of Abraham





Heights Of Abraham - Electric Hush - 1995 - Pork Recordings

Pork recordings produced some amazing downtempo electronica albums. Electric Hush is a good one, although it doesn't have the same impact as their brilliant "Humidity" album. But then albums as good and original as "Humidity" are a rare commodity, and HOA would have found it hard to better that particular album. Nevertheless, "Electric Hush" shouldn't be missed by any lover of quality modern chill-out electronica. Check out their classic downtempo "Humidity" album @ HOA/HUMIDITY
It is worth listening to another Pork release, "East Coast Chip Shop" by Moss, and "Seven Up" by Baby Mammoth. There is info on a great compilation album by Pork recordings @ VA - PORK 100

Perhaps not as awesome as Humidity but pretty good, and with a cover of "dolphins" of all things. Thanks for that.

Hey, vanDiemerbroucke. Definitely not as good as Humidity, but few albums of this genre are. Nevertheless, it's still pretty classy. Keep in touch with A.O.O.F.C. I like your comments
