Jardin Compans-Caffarelli

Harvey Sutherland and Bermuda

If you are in a pre-apocalyptic mood, gripped by panic and dread, you need to hear what Melbourne DJ/producer Mike Katz does as Harvey Sutherland & Bermuda. It’s the sound of Rhodes piano, “electric” (ie, synth) strings, real drums, and party-till-the-bomb-drops handclaps, all deployed in the service of some of the most mesmerising instrumental passages and sublime melodies you’ve heard since Arthur Russell.
