The new album from the iconic Penguin Cafe, joining with the Erased Tapes label to release The Imperfect Sea. This is beautiful, ambient and classical dance music, but strictly made using only acoustic instruments.

“For this album I wanted to effect a departure from where we’d been up to now. The idea was to create a musical world that would feel familiar to an audience more used to dance records but stay true to our own values. So we replaced electronic layers with real instruments: pads with real string sections, synths with heavily-effected pianos, and atmospheric analogue drones with real feedback loops ringing through a stone and a piano soundboard.”
