Hector Gachan’s selection
Yuko Yuko – Two Boys
Hector Gachan: “This a track and a half right here folks. Pure psychedelic pop with a cheeky 80’s feel to it. Catchy as hell. Wonderful female lead vocals with some call and response like chorus backed up by Yuko Yuko’s Elias. So Mashallah!“
Jermango Dreaming - I Want You
Hector Gachan: “Smooth as butter. Jermango serves us ‘I Want You’ a tune of pure love, longing and reassurance. No matter the distance or situation… He and I still want you.. Good enough to eat, good enough to dunk in your coffee. Clean sound all round, swinging beat, mid 20th century pop finesse, keys and a solo good enough to get your granny rockin’. Mashallah!“
Jerry Paper - Everything is Shitty
Hector Gachan: “As soon as this randomly popped up on my lappy.. I knew this was exactly where I wanted to be musically that sunday mornin’.. Lyrically the track is pretty insane. Extremely dark and yet so serene musically. Warm organs, multi layered vocals singing along with gorgeous high pitched female sampled vocals. The song is a dystopian sonic venture. Perfect way to start the end of your week. To quote a random youtube comment on this track “It’s like if vaporwave was actually music.” Mashallah…“
Hector Gachan - Untitled ‘91
Inès: “I can’t remember how I discovered Hector Gachan but I know it’s with Normal, a ghostly track with a great guitar line. I’ve been meaning to feature him on a MailTape episode for a while now, and I’m happy to have him as a guest today. Untitled ’91 is a super catchy tune, and perfect to chill out on Sunday mornings.“
Superorganism - Something for Your M.I.N.D.
Inès: “The musical equivalent of 100 litres of multi-vitamin juice.“
Sean Nicholas Savage - Opposing Truths
Inès: “I won’t lie, one of the reasons I chose this song is because of the shared lyrics with Hector Gachan’s second selected track. Other than that, it’s also because it’s a nice, kinda cheesy, delicate ballad with an amazing chorus.“
Maison de Retraite - today i am a piece of shit
Inès: “Hector Gachan picked a song about everything being shitty, so I picked a song about being a piece of shit. To be fair, this track is just noisy nonsense, which for some reason makes a lot of sense to me. Happy Sunday guys, let’s all bask in the satisfying feeling of knowing that we can be useless human beings today.“
