Telemachus ft. Penelope Oddity: Beaten Gold

A very welcome return to the blog by Telemachus, who recently announced the imminent release of a new album. Having already become a staple part of the UK scene through his production efforts as Chemo, his alter ego, Telemachus, has spent yearr travelling round the world and absorbing different musical cultures, which he then channels into sublime instrumental projects such as 2014’s, In Morocco. This latest album draws heavily on influences from the likes of Vietnamese folk tales, West African high life, dancehall, jungle and folk, all punctuated with vocal support from a handful of artists. The lead single sees its release today and features some dreamlike production from Telemachus, bolstered by some haunting vocals from Penelope Oddity. The album, Boring & Weird Historical Music, is due for release shortly on High Focus.
