Spool’s Out Radio #138: Graintable

Graintable is the nom de plume of Portlandian producer James Cooke; an ‘omnivorous’ project that’s thus far taken on “everything from new age-y house to instrumental hip-hop and UK techno”. His latest tape, Herons, was inspired by the acquisition of a Roland Juno-106, leading Cooke to focus on late-night one-take ambient hardware jams, bursting with pure and simple melodies and lush synth colouring. Herons is out via Ransom Note Records, and Graintable’s put together a beautiful mix in celebration, opening up with that Brian Eno and Kevin Shields thing they did. What more could you want?
