Top Ten Psychill Tracks Of 2017
For psychill fans, 2017 was a year in which the past came roaring back back to haunt our speakers. Crystal Moon – the lightning-in-a-bottle partnership of Matt Hillier (Ishq) and the late great Jake Stephenson of Alien Mutation – returned with a reissue of their classic album “Temple.”
Banco De Gaia revived his seminal 1997 album Big Men Cry with a 20th Anniversary Edition. Twin Peaks inspired Liquid Rainbow to compose The Blue Rose Sessions, and the legendary Silent Records label returned from a long period of dormancy. Memories of the 90s found their voice again in 2017.
