An album with very clear intentions, referencing the late '70s in all its hedonistic glory and irony. Detached and smooth, but obviously crafted with love and respect for its subject matter.
Favorite track: Have To Stay.
‘It Takes A Lot’ hearkens back to the halcyon days of roller skates, coke mirrors and discotheques. You’ll catch yourself lying on a grand piano in the penthouse suite punch drunk in a pastel pink suit. It’s bright and velvety elevator jazz executed with a Steely Dan sense of irony, cradling you in the warm uterine wax blot of a lava lamp as your disembodied self shines out onto the marble floor.
You’ll find the Caribbean shorelines, the French Boulevards, the hot springs of Beppu and the vineyards in Northern Italy. It will make you think back to wet dreams and unanswered love letters. It’ll make you remember those rare Japanese porno mags you stashed in the attic in the late 70s. Mostly, it’ll cut a clear path of it’s own in your imagination - fabulously hedonistic.

Dreamy, psychedelic, and belongs to the beach scene. I can jam to this anytime, baby.
And due to it my record having the ever so slightest delay (I didn't even think it was delayed), Balue threw in a vinyl of his other album, along with a nice pink and shiny guitar pick and a hand written note. Too kind. <3 愛Cannonthecat死
This is album is amazing. It's toned down but still deep at the same A lot of that is down to Amelia's hypnotic voice. Morningside is one the few albums I actually like listening to from beginning to end. "Half-Figured" gets played on repeat after a long day. DarthMeseeks
