Lusine - Lucky Numbers: The Ghostly International EPs (2010)

Absolutely love Lusine's sound, aka Jeff McIlwain, and he's been one of my favourite US producers for a while now. Was pretty excited to see Ghostly Records release this a few weeks ago. A lot of the tracks have appeared on earlier releases, B sides and the likes, but all and all it's essential fodder.

From Ghostly's website (your typical PR bollocks to be honest, skip it and take a listen:

Lucky Numbers’ tracks pull from Lusine’s equally vital past and present. McIlwain remixes himself in alternate versions of the sublime singles from 2009’s A Certain Distance, “Twilight” and “Two Dots” – both featuring Vilja Larjosto’s pristine vocals—and in an alternate take of haunted-house creeper “Crowded Room”; and unreleased tracks “John Doe” and “Rubberbands (Dirty Mix)” round out the collection. Lusine’s work may be hard to pigeonhole stylistically, but as a work of genre-defying art and floor-filling ingenuity, Lucky Numbers couldn’t be easier on the ears.
