Cage And Aviary’s Migration
Bird freak here checking in… I’m glad Cage & Aviary’s new album MIGRATION finally came out a couple of weeks ago and it’s as good as expected. I’m inclined to used the words: disco, spacey, and haunted when describing the overall vibe of the album. Some of the tracks might even be tributes to disco papi’s Giorgio M and Todd T according to the titles. Anyway, this is a good one and totally worth the purchase.
Part man, part machine, part cockatiel, Cage & Aviary take flights of fancy whenever they can. Jamie Paton is a DJ, a one-finger keyboardist, and a pot-tickler. Nigel of Bermondsey is a musician, South London’s finest oscillator, and a dedicated dabbler. Together they are winners of the cosmic lottery.
Having put out releases to much acclaim on the ltd editions that are Dissident Distribution, Cage & Aviary have since spread their wings with releases on DFA, Tiny Sticks, and Astro Lab. Their own label, The Walls Have Ears, is slowly carving out a reputation for quality dubbed-out dance music too – the Cage & Aviary remix series has met with great critical acclaim thus far, with the likes of Andy Blake, Prins Thomas, Horse Meat Disco, Mock N Toof, Bill Brewster, Tim Sweeney, James Murphy, Tiga, Erol Alkan, Felix Dickinson, Leo Zero and other such luminaries counted amongst fans of their work.
