It's our 50th New Idea, and it's nothing but a pleasure to be able to offer up that milestone to one of the most exciting artists we've come across so far. Sun Glitters hail from Luxembourg. That's the same Luxembourg whose football team went an astonishing 12 years without winning a match, and whose population clocks in at just over the half million mark. Of course, that's all by the by, but it's always going to be intriguing when genres and ideas of music arrive in countries you may not expect to be cultivating anything of a scene. It's great to hear a fresh ear putting their spin on things, as was heard on Sun Glitters' out of the blue mini LP 'Everything Could Be Fine'. The record - awash with chillwave and hypnogogic vibes which have already filled this first quarter of 2011 to it's brim - cleverly sidestepped any accusations of bandwagon-jumping and pulled the genre into an entirely different world. Here, wonky beats and pitch shifted vocals rest atop a tunneling sub bass that when put together gives us an album of sleepwalkers' lullabies. It'd seem we have one of the most forward thinking and inspired producers of the hazy pop generation on our hands. Thanks Luxembourg.
