024 Private Elevators 'LA Looks'

025 Tropical Rock 'Yellow Dock'
A collaboration between Ka Baird, Camilla Padgitt-Coles and guest musician Taralie Peterson of Spires That in the Sunset Rise on saxophone. Bandcloud on Side B: "...It's a gently modulated syncopated cascade of synth bleeps that wouldn't be out of place on a 90s trance comp. It's incredible. These sounds drift away after about nine minutes, allowing a bed of sound to take over. Flourishes of saxophone escape this mist from time to time, suspended in time, eventually fading into nothingness."
