Watch This! Jilk And Haiku Salut Have Just Released A Great New Single Of Beautiful Ambient ElectronicaJilk and Haiku Salut are two bands with a lot in common, hence why their collaborating for a new single makes perfect sense. It also makes beautiful music you’ll be pleased to hear, proof of which can be found in the video below for the track Periscopes. 

Simple music done well is the best kind of music sometimes. Mix that with some off-kilter atmospherics here, some twinkly instrumentals there and occasional bursts of something a tad more rowdy and you might well have something even better.

You certainly do in the case of this collaboration between Haiku Salut, the acclaimed “Baroque-Pop-Folktronic-Neo-Classical-Something-Or-Other” trio from the Derbyshire Dales, and the “enigmatic Bristol electronica collective” Jilk.

The starting point for Periscopes, we’re told, was the track “Six Impossible Things” by Haiku Salut, but you’d really need to be told that to spot it, and even so you might not believe it so different are the two pieces of music.

“Periscopes” is out now and can be downloaded via iTunes.

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
