Seal Pool Sounds

Philip Sanderson

2005
Seal Pool

Philip Sanderson was a key player in the UK DIY underground of the early 1980s, releasing a great run of cassettes on his Snatch Tapes imprint, including some excellent titles from his Storm Bugs duo with Steven Ball. He’s also worked with David Jackman of Organum, and appeared with Nigel Jacklin’s Alien Brains. But there’s something about Seal Pool Sounds, released two decades later, that’s definitive. Working with curiosity and wit, he shades these thirteen studies in multiple colours – some almost Kosmische-style electronics; beautiful pin-prick arpeggio patterns; woozy, psychedelic tone-floats. There’s plenty of play here, and beauty, too.
