Artist: The Cactus Channel
Title: Stay A While
Product Type: VINYL LP

Vinyl LP pressing. 2017 release. Three is the magic number for The Cactus Channel. The ever-evolving Melbourne collective's third album represents a new consciousness and a decisive turning point. Unloosed from their earlier incarnation as an instrumental soul and funk band into something wilder, a little darker and heavier, this album sees The Cactus Channel diving in deep to dreamlike soundtracks, electrifying wig-outs and woozy meditations. And now with the band's own Lewis Coleman stepping up to the mic, a vocal dimension has become part of The Cactus Channel's fully formed, signature sound. This new embodiment of The Cactus Channel is of the cultural moment, akin to the vibrational path-crossing of fellow travelers such as Badbadnotgood, Unknown Mortal Orchestra & Menahan Street Band. The band flexes their classic soul and funk influences whilst expanding their own songwriting along psychedelic paths, adding weight and substance to their melodic and rhythmic axis. Looking back to when The Cactus Channel formed in high school, united by shared interests and a shared sense of humour, they were always set to walk this new path. A love of soul music and the kind of hip hop, jazz, and alternative releases that spring from it, meant that from the beginning The Cactus Channel have prided themselves not just on eclecticism, but on the constant sharing of influences among their members; exploring new influences and sonic territories.
