SHREM'S TRIP-HOP RETROSPECTIVE: "FLOWERS BLOOM" - Mandalay
TITLE: "Flowers Bloom"
RELEASE DATE: 1996, re-released with remixes in 1998
LABEL: V2 Records Inc.
LOCATION: London, UK
This was one of my personal favourites back in 1998. Nicola Hitchcock's sublime vocals, haunting melody and those poetic lyrics. They released only two albums and "Flowers Bloom" was easily their most accomplished work. Here it comes with two different from the album versions. Alex Reece's drum'n'bass version is particularly dreamy.
