Conic Rose's debut album 'Heller Tag' is one of those 'WOW!' moments as if everyone from Gilles Peterson to James Acaster had just found their new "immcaulate" album!

If you can image Kruder & Dorfmeister and Cinematic Orchestra's lovechild, this collection of jazzy, ambient, hip-trippy electronica OST instrumental pop is pretty close.

We've already raved about 'Gleisdreieck', 'Goodbye' and the magnificent 'Learn To Be Cool' [Miles Davis meets 'Teardrops' via 'Baba O'Riley' - this is the only way to learn to be cool] but you'll be hard pressed to find another 12 perfect tracks this side of next year.

Others have mentioned Bach, Bonobo, Jon Hassell, Nils-Petter Molvaer and they're all there along with Can ('Hope In The Crypto Crash') or the Balearic dawn of 'Nie Wieder Knutschen'; you could say it's a modern 'free' jazz as it's open season. 

For more information on the band and the earlier singles, check the links above and after such a miserable start to the year, this is a the best antidote to get on a new high.

Great artwork too!
