Sonic Boom was a member of Spacemen 3, the foundational transportive sonic experimenters from Rugby. Sonic Boom has since left Rugby for Portugal’s sunny shores, and pursued an acclaimed solo career with Spectrum. He’s also brought his musical aesthetic to a number of records he produced, including MGMT’s Congratulations and two albums from fellow Portugal transplant Panda Bear.
This is the more uptempo of the two playlists he has in store for Ravelin readers. The mix brings together bands that he’s worked with like MGMT, contemporaries from the Spacemen 3 days like The Jesus and Mary Chain, as well as sorts of gems from groups that predate him, and of course, there are the wildcards like the new Doctor Who theme.
Take a listen and stay tuned for the second installment.
