James Reeno (SPAZZOID RECORDS/NYC RECORDS/KUPCAKE RECORDS) Mildlife is ethereal, funky, trippy, and lush, while displaying impeccable musicianship.

Great album (as their previous ones). So good that I cannot pick a favorite, but it might be "Sunrize" for now.
Favorite track: Sunrise.

woe_bonnet Outré cosmic disco armada Mildlife have really outdone themselves this time! Chorus is cover-to-cover top shelf grooves. "Forever" and "Return to Centaurus" actually require your dosimeter flap be open. 👍 Favorite track: Forever.

This album is pure perfection, everything sounds where it needs to be, like if they took the best from anything I’ve heard through the ages and mixed it with futuristic luxurious synths and a disco mirrorball
Love you guys, really hope to see you in Mexico soon! 🙌🏻

Favorite track: Musica.

Forever 05:35
Life and living, When to begin? Arrive in a place, Might want to stay There was a time, beating Over the sky, meeting Hoping to find meaning, When you arrive, I’m leaving Forever, feels like never Forever, feels like never Here I reside, The ages divide, From past until noon, I’ll be seeing you soon, There was a time, beating Over the sky, meeting Hoping to find meaning, When you arrive, I’m leaving Forever, feels like never Forever, feels like never

Yourself 06:22
Tip toeing around, Can’t quite meet you in the middle Unfamiliar sound I don’t know what I know, And the moment is gone I get up when i’m down, Might need more than just a little, Can’t turn it around, And I know, I don’t know, what I know Take Yourself Place Yourself Make Yourself Face Yourself Raise Yourself Pace Yourself Face your Body Fantastic life, Turning one way then another And i’m looking to find, if I know, what I know, then I know Take Yourself Place Yourself Make Yourself Face Yourself Raise Yourself Pace Yourself Face your body Not tip toeing around, No weight on my mind, Getting up when i’m down, As it breaks your body down Fantastic life, Alone for the ride
3.
Sunrise 04:06
Fly along, staring at the sunrise Fly along, staring at the sunrise Got a friend out in the city, With everything he needs Such a golden pity to be just like me. He’s contemplating It’s a visual affair, to spend a life in his eyes. Full of it’s despair, waiting for the sunrise. Fly along, staring at the sunrise

Musica 05:49 video
Musica, sounds of the city breath, 
 Musica, natures symphony,
 Musica, sounds from another time, Musica, enjoy it with my wine, Musica, mi da la carica, 
 Musica, nature symphonic Musica, question answer me, Musica, complete necessity, Musica, talk-walk pedestrian,
 Musica, a frequent resident, Musica, mi da la carica (get up on music) Musica, nature symphonic (get up on music)

Future Life 04:35
I wanna know, drawing me in close Overnight, a new surprise Another call, picking up the phone Wandering into the night Dragging me along, waiting to discover Where do I belong? don’t wanna be another Don’t wanna know, keep it moving on New delight? or my demise? But I wanna go, so open up the door Future life when I arrive. Dragging me along, keep it undercover. Another call from the future self, I decide I didn’t hear. I wanna know, but I could live without certainty, certainly. Dragging me along waiting to discover. Where do I belong, don’t wanna be another. Dragging me along, keep it undercover. Dragging me along waiting to discover. Where do I belong, don’t wanna be another. Dragging me along, keep it undercover. Where do I belong, waiting to discover.

Donʼt go searching for a brand new world
 Donʼt go searching for a brand new world
 Just in time, youʼll find itʼs right to listen to it yesterday Donʼt go searching for that brand new way
 Donʼt go searching cause Iʼd like to stay
 here in your mind thereʼs time to find a reason for a yesterday All that I find is synthesised 
 I hear it call to me It's calling out to me I hear it calling me Is something calling me?

about

On their third studio full-length, Mildlife link microcosmic personal meaning with a macro view from on high. Chorus is the sound of singular entities coalescing into a wondrous whole. It’s harmonious togetherness and celebratory symbiosis. And it’s the band’s ultimate statement of their borderline mystical unity, their unified theory of groove.

“Chorus is about a coming together of disparate elements. Not in some sort of utopian aesthetic where everything works perfectly, but in the natural flow and state of things,” shares the band’s Jim Rindfleish. “It’s about cosmic compatibility and chemistry: what makes things work? Not just what makes the band work, but what makes good music, art or love? It’s the rhythm of nature”.

Following 2020’s Automatic and 2017’s Phase, Chorus arrives as Mildlife’s most optimistic record, serving as a sonic testament to the band’s unwavering adoration for the beguiling realms of 70s psychedelic and cosmic sounds. Delve deeper, and you’ll unearth Polish jazz, Italo disco and a sprinkling of contemporary electronic sounds. Chorus is the dance of an expanding and contracting universe - its groove is forever and always, cyclical and evolving. In its most human moments, the album luxuriates in the velvety embrace of Tomas Shanahan’s bass lines, Halliwell’s luminous guitar riffs, Kevin McDowell’s hushed and alluring vocals, Rindfleish’s intricate percussive tapestries and the spiritual rhythms of regular collaborator Craig Shanahan. Swept up in the chorus, the lines between individual and ensemble blur.

“It’s knowing that all the pieces of our own puzzles can slot neatly into a bigger one.” says Shanahan. Such a creative revelation is the band's growing assurance in their vocal prowess. On the band’s previous albums, McDowell's voice stood as the predominant lyrical conduit, but on Chorus all members have a moment of expression, highlighting their own choral visions, forging a new unified openness and humanity to the their sound. “We had this idea that we wanted to create a kind of disparate ecosystem of living things,” continues Shanahan. “We liked the idea of creating a small metaphor of moving through space. You see moments of things and sounds that may not emerge again, until everything around you starts to unify.”

Chorus might be an album of individual tracks, band members and experiences, but it’s more than the sum of its parts. It’s microscopic particles forming new minerals or overlapping time signatures folding in on themselves in generative creation. With the release of Chorus the band has once again opened a portal to their singular realm of rhythmic communion. Step into the flow.
