Taragana Pyjarama - "Ocean"
Every once in a while, stars align in such a way as to allow the perfect union between artist and record label. One where the artist's sound is so inextricably attached to a label's aesthetic that any other record deal would seem lacking. It happened with Gold Panda and Ghostly International: the result was Lucky Shiner, my favorite album of 2010. And it will happen again on March 28, when Fool House releases Taragana Pyjarama's self-titled EP. Fool House is famous for having released Delorean's Best New Music'd Ayrton Senna EP, before their full-length Subiza went on to be Best New Music'd as well. Based on "Ocean" and the hype already building around this release, we can expect similarly great things from Taragana Pyjarama, too. From the first sounds of waves crashing against the beach to the last sounds of feet splashing around in water, we are submerged in the warmest, most welcoming sounds we can imagine. Minimalist dream-house to fall asleep or swim far to. Seems to feature a sample of Imogen Heap's "Goodnight And Go" (unconfirmed). Taragana Pyjarama is out March 28 on Fool House.
