about

"“A brilliant new compilation. This is a must listen if you like spacey ethereally produced ambient electronic music. It is a beautiful mix including some of my favourite artists like Major Force, Palm Skin Production and Pye Corner Audio. Howie B has excelled himself this time. This album has been on repeat for me this week.””

Nemone - BBC Radio 6 - Nemone's Electric Ladyland

“Fantastically ambitious...a fabulous couple of hours” ★★★★ ​

"An excellent compendium of eclectic music" Now Then Magazine

“A stellar new Pussyfoot Records compilation” Clash

After the success of Pussyfoot Records’ comeback label sampler, we are back with one stonking big compilation album. ‘Space Is The Plaice’ will be available to buy as a 3LP and 2CD with 28 tracks on each, the extended digital version is a hefty 35 tracks. The album is an aquatic space opera that will have you experiencing zero gravity beats, deep space bleeps and the gentle whir of Uranus. With artists contributing from the UK, Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand, USA, and all over Europe this album will take you once around the globe and then a few light years further.

The story starts with ‘Creation’, whether you believe in the big bang or a higher power, TILT’s track creates such a musical explosion that it would put the Hadron Collider into a spin! Blood Wine or Honey’s celebratory jazz filled ‘Brilliant Pebbles’ conjures the image of a modern Star Wars Cantina band. Major Force Productions are back after their last release on Pussyfoot Records 20 years back, with an east meets west gong groove set on the desert plains of Mars. MX-774 delivers ‘Into The Cosmos’; a moody electronic soundscape that builds texturally into a supernova of sound.

Our good pal Jacknife Lee makes his Pussyfoot return with ‘Overview’ a cinematic view of the earth from space. ‘Anenome Mine’ by Timothy Fife & Deadly Avenger sees ambient electronica mixing with an 80’s dirty cop theme tune. Electronic grime and spoken word find a place in ‘Crash Landing’ by Ancient Lights featuring Flowdan. Kensuke Shiina’s ‘Orbiting Satellites’ features an old-school trip-hop drum beat accompanied by some sweeping strings and swelling synths. ‘Airy’S’ is a deeply emotional song performed by knowone, asking the universe for “No more war”.

We’ve then got the two, new baby-faced Pussyfoot recruits Ninna Lundberg and Milo Clare. Lundberg’s track ‘Way Out’ is the perfect introduction to the artists powerful earth-shattering vocals, an alt pop-rock track with a dry persistent rhythm guitar and a vocal hook that can’t be put down. Milo Clare’s dreamy R&B vocals take you skywards in ‘20000’ where neo-soul drums meet funk guitar. Pussyfoot alum Dobie returns with ‘Ripley’s Theme’; a downtempo orchestral exploration of a deserted space station (say that 5 times faster). Chari Chari falls back into our arms with the thunderous synth driven ‘Backward Compatibility’. Nick Faber brings some disco to the space party with his 70’s sci-fi groove ‘Dancing At The End Of The Universe’.

Rui Da Silva goes modular in Interstellar Voyager 3 with oscillating squeaks and mysterious beat. Luke Haines’ punk-esque vocals accompany distorted synths and rhythmic bongos on ‘Deep Space Junk’. ‘Riders To The Stars’ is a psychedelic rock odyssey with massive orchestration and robo vocals by Romin. Tojin Kit also has also managed to wrangle a robot to feature on their track ‘Machina’ an epic space soundtrack. Thumping drums and spaced out vocal samples pepper Sie’s ‘Music For Space Stations’ with an element of drama. Extra-terrestrial synths build in Pye Corner Audio’s ‘Deep Space Probe. Skylab presents an eerie bedtime story set in deep space filled with robotic insectoids in ‘Hostile Planet Escape Sequence’. FPM uses a vocaloid chorus like the beach boys on atmospheric space acid create a beautiful but eerie soundscape in ‘Accept You All’.

Howie B returns with a special guest, ‘A Letter From Space’ is an emotional spoken word piece performed by actor Norman Reedus. Renowned Double bassist, Borgar Magnason meditates beautifully in the wonderfully orchestrated ‘In To The Wild’. Sunny Levine lends a voice to some synthy space whales, R&B vocals strut over the top of a relaxed beat and funky baseline. ‘Air Is The Prayer’ is rife with wonky rhythms and huge bass build, the finest space funk provided by Palm Skin Productions. Last but not least is Ofeliadorme with a literal response to ‘space’, Atmospheric production with Portishead-esque vocals.

Special pre-order prices for Triple EP and Double CD!

about

Pussyfoot Records London, UK

Pussyfoot was started in 1993 by Howie B and Nick Young in response to the lack of musical diversity seen in other labels. One of the first independent record labels, Pussyfoot toed the waters of musical expression through genre-bending releases. After taking a short cat nap in 2003, the label is back to licking its whiskers in 2018. ... more

Track Name: Ninna Lundberg - Way Out
You sold me stars honey
When you threw them in my face
I went along
Above the cars honey
We flew around the sky
Into the sun

But why did you come to this party?
I didn’t think that you would
Why did you come to this party?
I think that you misunderstood
Why’d you even come to this party,
When we’re all out of place
Why would you come to this party,
When we only work way out in space

Maybe in ten thousand light years
When all our clothes are worn out
We will head back south
In ten thousand light years
All our clothes are worn out
We will head back south

It's a long long flight honey
To an endless destination
That’s unknown
Between the lights honey
You can talk to me about it
On the phone

But why did you come to this party?
It’s not a thing we should do
When you know that I think that it’s likely
To break down if we pull it through
Why’d you even come to this party
Won't you get off my case
No don’t you try and love me this hardly
When we only work way out in space

Maybe in ten thousand light years
When all our clothes are worn out
We will head back south
In ten thousand light years
All our clothes are worn out
We will head back south
Track Name: Milo Clare - 20000
Your heart beats fast
My eyes move slow
(slow, slow, slow..)
Talking through screens
Lets make believe just a little bit
Not what it seems
Live in a dream just a little bit
There’s more to this
Than ground control
(so, so, so..)
So you’ve fallen in
As you scream into the radio

20,000 feet
Still thinking about you
Planet’s looking blue
I guess it’s missing you
And I know just how it feels

20,000 feet
Still thinking about you
Planet’s looking blue
I guess it’s missing you
And I know just how it feels

I still can’t sleep
Your tears still flow
(flow, flow, flow..)
In space you still feel friction
Out of all of my addictions
It was you my dear
Out of reach
And hard to know
(know, know, know..)
To loose you without warning
Hear me calling as i’m falling
Through the atmosphere

20,000 feet
Still thinking about you
Planet’s looking blue
I guess it’s missing you
And I know just how it feels

20,000 feet
Still thinking about you
Planet’s looking blue
I guess it’s missing you
And I know just how it feels

On any given planet that I move on
I need a couple things but to choose one
You’re all I need
And I’ve been feeling sick since I touched down
Hard to hear with all this static in the background
It’s you I breathe

20,000 feet
Still thinking about you
Planet’s looking blue
I guess it’s missing you
And I know just how it feels

20,000 feet
Still thinking about you
Planet’s looking blue
I guess it’s missing you
And I know just how it feels
