‘THE DIRECTOR’ is a limited edition series of The Golden Apples of the Sun. This Sunday Edition 1 is hosted by Adam Christou, Music Director at RTRFM 92.1. Adam loves music and wrote these words on the RTRFM website to help listeners understand what the Golden Apples is about…”Through blissful reverie and sun-dappled hallucinogenic soundscapes, find yourself transported to a world beyond time, where both past and future intermingle, and where sound rules supreme”.

Magic Eye = (haze pop + shoegaze + indie-pop) x lo-fi

Magic Eye’s latest cassette, Babylon  on Not Not Fun was almost scrapped as the hazy gazer pop sound synonymous with the Edinburgh four piece was compromised when the group attempted to record in a professional studio. So the band took their belongings back to the bedroom, piecing together the Babylon cassette on their own

You can get the track Golden Eye as performed live in the video on the 2013 sampler from the Song, By Toad Record Label/Blog from Edinburgh Scotland.

Check outa  very cool mixtape they did for Impose Magazine here

“…This mix is made from songs that we were into around the time of recording the album. We stitched them together and ran them through our effects. The Robert Fripp tune is a song I wish I could have listened to properly, but it’s from pieces of his youtube interview in the reverb chamber with interview clips in between…”

03 Robert Fripp – Frippertronics
04 Art Of Noise – Moments of Love
