Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

Ethereal Portland daydreamer Kate Hummel aka MORNINGFACE shared a stirring
beauty online. I DON’T WANNA KNOW is a delightful collaboration with Mark Refoy
who was part of Spacemen 3 and Jason Pierce‘s awesome Spiritualized. After leaving Spiritualized (1994) Refoy started his own – still ongoing – project called Slipstream.
Every great song has a great story. Here’s Hummel‘s story about how she met Refoy
and how they joined forces to create this amazing, mind-pleasing vibration…
“I came across a ‘Slipstream’ song on Soundcloud called Girl From The Black Country.
It really blew my mind. I didn’t even put two and two together that Mark was part of my
two favorite bands ‘Spacemen 3’ and ‘Spiritualized’. I had wanted to collaborate with him
but was afraid to ask, but one day I did and he said yes. I had a rough song called ‘I Don’t Wanna Know’. I sent it to him and what he sent me back actually made me nauseous when
I first heard it, it was that good. It sounded a bit like Spiritualized’s Shine A Light with the arpeggiated guitar and I hold that song in the highest esteem. Recently I was in England
and we actually got to meet up and finish the song. I added harmonica in B which we then bastardized unrecognizable with repeater into a drone. Mark’s a prince of a man and a
brilliant musician/producer. A complete honor to work with him and have his support.”
I DON’T WANNA KNOW will touch your sonic senses instantly. Its transcendent resonance and elevating tunefulness are truly delightful and entrancing. The starry-eyed combination of MORNINGFACE‘s soulful vox and SLIPSTREAM‘s magical guitar wizardry is a sparkling triumph. Sit back, relax, press the button and enjoy the mind-massage right here…
