Rupert Lally ‘Marine Life ’ (Glass Reservoir)

The salty waters of Brighton ebb around the eclectic ambient missives of ‘Marine Life’. The current home of the Glass Reservoir label, and childhood haunt of granular sampling convert Lally, the town provides the inspiration for a musical boat trip where the gentle paddle of ‘Deceptively Calm’ surrenders to the pulsing, whitewater ride of ‘High Speed Crossing’. And in the murky waters of the title track you’ll find a beatific sub-aquatic haven, just crying out for a florid Jacques Cousteau narration.
