Phosphene – Phoenix Trees John Cavanagh is many things to many people – unearther of rare Delia Derbyshire recordings, longtime music broadcaster, psych-writer and serial analogue synth botherer. Phosphene is his musical project and Phoenix Trees is his latest interstellar installment of radiophonic vibrations from Glasgow, featuring abstract acoustics atop antique science fiction sounds, Meek melodies, tone poems, otherworldly violin and what sounds like a requiem for a dying star. Following releases on labels such as Secret Eye, Enraptured, Ochre and Static Caravan amongst others, Phosphenes sonic quest continues with The Phoenix Trees on Rusted Rail. Immerse yourself in the world of Phosphene and allow your soul to be psychedelicized by a 3 inch EP in a handmade sleeve.
