#vinyloftheday: Friday Selekts with Blood, Wine or Honey’s Top Nine Records
Elusive yet prolific, Blood, Wine or Honey have quickly gained international momentum. Within the past year, they have graced Sonar Festival Hong Kong and garnered accolades from a laundry list of influential publications and platforms: Beats In Space, NTS, Juice FM, Radio X, Radio Bern, BBC Radio 6, Mixmag Asia, and the South China Morning Post.
The trio credits their “mantric afro-bitten electro-psychedelia” to the creative atmosphere that surrounds the industrial warehouses of Hong Kong — made even more intense by the unrelenting humidity characteristic of the regions within the South China Sea. Consisting of multi-instrumentalists / vocalists Shane Aspegren, Joseph von Hess and James Banbury, Blood, Wine or Honey has steadily championed their heady fusion of sounds throughout the global musical circuit. Their 2017 breakout tracks, “The Forest is Expecting You” and “Anxious Party People,” count the legendary Iggy Pop, Worldwide FM head honcho Gilles Peterson and Robert Luis of Tru Thoughts among their admirers.
In conjunction with the release of their hotly anticipated debut album, “Fear & Celebration” earlier in June, #vinyloftheday has quizzed Blood, Wine or Honey on the records that have inspired them — both personally and as musicians.
