With Morgan Geist`s last solo 12" four years ago, it`s a bit of an understatement to say that a new solo undertaking from the Environ bossman is overdue. Better late than never: we present to you the new 12" from the Mr. Geist, Most of All, featuring Jeremy Greenspan from Junior Boys. The song "Most of All" is the result of Geist`s increasing obsession with songwriting and arrangement being coupled with a fixation on epic, purely-electronic albums and library records. Geist decided on a purely electronic direction for "Most of All," spurred on in large part by the collaboration with Junior Boys main man Jeremy Greenspan, a like-minded lover of great electronic bands (favorites including YMO, Japan, and TalkTalk) and...well, yes, disco. With Greenspan`s unique voice floating over Geist`s highly-detailed production, the result is part romantic standard, part lost new wave memories, part space-disco and part something unknown and unfamiliar. The B1 instrumental version on the flip streamlines the arrangement into something fit for the floor, yet retains the essence of the song within. Finally, the second B-side track "Skyblue Pink" is Geist`s homage to memories of summer days in the 70s spent listening to synth-rock in his older brother`s room. With all things Balearic and cosmic currently the rage among discerning diggers, now seemed like the right time to drop Skyblue Pink!
