Please meet Chris Root if you don’t already know him. Buy / listen to his debut solo album, Wind Made of Kisses (TL-144) here: https://ffm.to/wind-made-of-kisses
a focus on pop hooks, love stories and dark secretsSpectral Nights
During his fifteen years of record-making under various guises, Chris Root has created music that’s been dependably – but deceptively — sunny. His work with AM-60 and Mosquitos boasted breezy melodies and recounted dreamily romantic tales about chance encounters, stars aligning, charmed lives led on the beaches of Rio de Janiero, in seaside Mexican villages, on the streets of New York City’s West Village. But harbored within his hummable tunes was a hint of melancholy, a longing, that gave his songs a deeper character. – Michael Hill [Read the full bio here].
Please meet Phillip Norman Watson, a lifelong student of the piano and an avid hiker who currently resides in the Pacific Northwest. Mists (TL-143) is a collection of meditations on natural phenomena. It is his first release on Team Love. We think of it as perfect chill. Listen: https://ffm.to/pnw-mists

Walking into Fopp the joke is on you it’s raining it’s 1993 PX bought you this Best Of Italian House 6-Sides it was two quid but you have to carry it home on that flight from Glasgow now it’s almost the year 2000 and you’re once again standing in the rain it’s Rock and Soul West 37th and you have a little extra money in your imagination the red MPC looks ripe and so you’re now back in your flat someone pretty with a zine has shown you how to roll a butterfly spliff you perfect the art look out that tiny window she’s with her man they’re grinding the sink is alive the halls are lined with the NYPD you squeeze one last bleep from the SH101 trace the bottom of a pickle jar onto a canvas the proctor tobacco scolds RIP its now 2019 and you think it’s time to quit but a small ant crosses the white note card as you purr cold sweat down your back tossing dead media into a for-hire dumpster listening to Fats not going back…
