7digital What we said: Having spent the last few years sandwiching mix-athons with BFFs Four Tet and Caribou in-between his neuroscience PhD, you wouldn’t have thought Sam Shepherd had time to squeeze in an album. Such a vast array of vocations, however, informs the wonderfully idiosyncratic quality of his debut. Subtler than the rapturous acid wiggle of last year’s EP Nuits Sonoires, Elaenia foregrounds Shepherd's life-long love of classical and jazz music, as flawless improvisations embellish ethereal brass-arrangements and bubbling boogie-rhythms. Without settling on a fixed direction, Shepherd’s seven glorious “suites” gently hark back to the abstract utopias of his early excursions, resulting in a dreamy blend of orchestral lullabies and gentle dancefloor preludes.
