Illuminator - "Gulf Hymn"
Remember that Conveyor track I posted about a week ago? Well I forgot to mention that "Mukraker" is to be released as a split single with none other than the ever mind blowing folks of Illuminator. Their contribution to the split is a metamorphic little ditty by the name of "Gulf Hymn". It mixes parts of "You Are Overgrown" (the auto-tune, mostly) with the soulfulness of "The Child The Voice" while also straddling this genre-bending line with an ephemeral spark of something vaguely resembling R&B. By the time you get to the end of "Gulf Hymn", you're not sure exactly how you got there but appreciate the journey.
